GCSO has been in charge of enforcement of the Beverly Sand dunes since the get-go. You are correct that DNR (WE)own the land but the GCSO patrols it. There is also a section of DNR school trust land here in the Moses Lake Sand dunes that is the same way. Grant County may own 1 section of land in the Moses Lake dunes, and the rest is DFW and private and DNR. I do not think it would be legal for them to close the land, but they would have to drop the ORV program. This would be a very bad thing as you know.
