The Part Of Vera Perrott Vietor's 1972 Will That Created The Public's Nature Preserve and HAF

FIFTH: All of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate and property, including my home near Indianola, Humboldt County, California, and all of the real property owned by me at that location, I give to CROCKER NATIONAL BANK, a National Banking Association, to be held and administered for the following uses and purposes:

The income, but not the principal (1), of said trust fund shall be paid to the HUMBOLDT AREA FOUNDATION, hereinafter called "Foundation," to be used for the purposes of the Foundation.

The Foundation has been created by a Declaration of Trust executed by me at this date (2) and has been funded by an initial contribution of ONE THOUSAND ($1,000.00) DOLLARS from me to the Foundation.

My home and the real property mentioned above shall be used (3) in perpetuity as a headquarters building and the office of the Foundation. It has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life to leave this beautiful real property in its native and unspoiled condition, and it is my direction that the real property, and all of it, shall be open to members of the public to use and enjoy, subject to reasonable regulations to be prescribed by the Governing Board of the Foundation. I direct that the property shall not be despoiled by picnic tables, barbecue pits, swimming pools, or like improvements usually associated with public parks. Should the letter or the spirit of these provisions be breached at any future time, this trust shall terminate, and shall vest in the then-living issue of HENRY W. PERROTT, by right of representation. I further request that a suitable granite boulder be obtained on which shall be mounted a brass plaque with the following words inscribed thereon: "This park was given in memory of Lynn A. Vietor, September 26, 1897 - April 13, 1972, by his wife, Vera Perrott Vietor."

Some Perrott Watchdog Footnotes

(1) i.e., no HAF 'invasion' of principal allowed

(2) Vera Neuer signed the Declaration of Trust on 3 May 1972 when she signed her will. Vera died on 21 June 1972. The Declaration of Trust on file at the Courthouse is signed by White of Crocker Bank on 13 July, 1972 (no Vera signature). This is a bogus document? HAF have stated they are running affairs by the Declaration of Trust, not Vera's will?

(3) The 14.3 acres and residence are not owned by HAF but held in trust for the North Coast Public as part of the public's Lynn Vietor Nature Preserve, HAF as trustees, to protect not destroy. Note: HAF has the 'use', not ownership (and abuse) of the residence.
