EHL authored an opinion piece about the western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP) and was quoted about the Riverside OHV ordinance, the Foothill toll road, and regional transportation.

In the Riverside Press Enterprise opinion pages of April 9, 2006, Executive Director Dan Silver and community activist Jane Block authored “Without changes, species plan fails.” This article discussed the need for the MSHCP to use updated biological information to refine and improve reserve assembly, even if such changes are controversial.

On March 29, 2006, the San Diego Union Tribune reported on the off highway vehicle ordinance (“Limits on off-road vehicles OK'd”). Silver noted how the ordinance effectively balanced the legitimate interests involved.

Also on March 29, 2006, the Riverside Press Enterprise covered federal funding for a proposed tunnel between Orange and Riverside Counties (“Commuters weary; groups wary”).  Silver emphasized the need for strong environmental safeguards.
In the March 8, 2006 edition of the Orange County Register (“241 design work jumps in price”), the rising cost of Foothill toll road construction was reported. EHL was quoted objecting to the toll road agency plan to spend funds in advance of the legal challenges and necessary federal agency approvals. "There certainly is a big risk," Silver said. "There's just so many uncertainties - it seems irresponsible."
