State Parks would pay up to $1,000 for each day that the amount of dust blowing off Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area exceeds state limits

While not trained in dust management, I would suspect that wind would also be a factor in the amount of dust coming from the park.

What are you supposed to do when you see an "endangered" animal eating an "endangered" plant?
