Humboldt County is a rural county of approximately 140,000 residents, including 11 recognized Native American tribes and 7 incorporated cities. Covering 3,568 square miles, the county includes a productive bay and harbor in Eureka right on the Pacific Ocean and stretches east into rugged, sparsely populated coastal mountains. The transportation distances and restrictions isolate Humboldt, resulting in an island-like economy. At the geographic center of the five-county Redwood Coast region—including neighboring counties Del Norte, Mendocino, Trinity and Siskiyou— Humboldt has the largest population and workforce and generates the most new jobs and firms in the region.
This practice is located in Eureka, California, which is 5 hours north of San Francisco, minutes from Pacific Ocean beaches, and literally in the ancient and majestic giant redwood forests: temperate rainforests of ferns, lichens, rivers, streams, mountains, lakes, and lagoons. The location excels in opportunities to camp, hike or backpack trails through forests and along coastal beaches and prairies; stand up paddle the rivers, lakes, lagoons and bay; world-class fishing in both fresh and ocean waters; fabulous ocean point breaks for surfing; as well as sailing, kayaking, hunting, and so many other activities.
National Geographic Traveler has selected Redwood National Park as one of the top 50 world destinations – one of only five U.S. places honored. Backpacker magazine names the region as one of “The Best Cities to Raise an Outdoor Kid.” And the World Wildlife Fund has named Humboldt County as part of one of the most diverse eco-regions left on the planet.
