The Arcata Field Office is seeking approximately $70,000 in grant funds from the state of California’s Off Highway Motorized Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division.

Funds would be used in fiscal year 2012 for trail maintenance, law enforcement, and facilities operations and maintenance related to off-highway vehicle activities at Samoa Dunes Recreation Area.
