Did you know that in 2018 local VFDs (volunteer fire departments) dedicated well over 100,000 volunteer hours to keep our communities safe? Their dedication to our communities is amazing. Many of our local VFDs make do with aging equipment and apparatus; they continue to patch together repairs on deteriorating fire houses; and, it’s a challenge to find, retain and train volunteer fire fighters. Time and time again these committed individuals help us out of disasters of all shapes and sizes. Let’s do them a solid; pick a firehouse and send them some monetary love. Just do it. Donate today!! It’ll make you feel good and it assures that these VFDs continue to be available to help. And, if you have it in you, volunteer!!

Our beautifully strong Southern Humboldt community is beginning to open up after the Shelter In Place rules all but closed most businesses in our area. Some of our favorites are back with new and creative solutions to safely serving locals and visitors. Check it out!!
Benbow Historic Inn
A beloved treasure of Southern Humboldt, the Benbow Historic Inn is open for lodging and dining. The restaurant, under the leadership of returning Executive Chef George Tannehill, is offering limited meal service with a new menu featuring many Humboldt County-sourced ingredients. And, don’t forget the golf course is also open! You can check out their website at https://benbowinn.com/ for more info.
Gyppo Ale Mill
Gyppo is California’s most remote brewery with stunning views of the Pacific, cold beers and warm welcomes. Julia Peacock and her crew bend over backwards to provide great service while remaining attentive to the health and safety of their customers and employees.

We would like to announce the beginning stages of the Chamber’s campaign and marketing/branding plan in representing and promoting the greater area of Southern Humboldt!
In the developmental stages of our new website, the Chamber took some time to think in detail about what all it is we do, what we stand for and who we are to Southern Humboldt.
First established in 1941, over the past few decades we have grown, expanded and changed just as Southern Humboldt has.
There are 3 key words that best describe who we are and what we do.
Cultivate (symbolizing growth and expansion)
Collaborate (working as a team with others)
Connect (bringing people, places & things together)
We currently help:
Cultivate new and existing businesses
Cultivate the cannabis businesses
Cultivate relationships between business owners
Cultivate spaces to learn (education)
We do our best to:
Collaborate with government agencies
Collaborate with local agencies
Collaborate with other organizations
Collaborate to share creative ideas
We build relationships and try to:
Connect with Community
Connect with Tourism
Connect with Nature
Connect with Oneself
With our eyes wide open and in representing the greater area of Southern Humboldt, we feel that:
SOUTHERN HUMBOLDT IS ALL ABOUT DISCOVERY AND A JOURNEY
We encourage the community, our members, tourists, travelers and out of towners alike to:
“Discover Your Journey”
