LIHUE — The DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife is inviting Kauai residents to submit applications for positions on a community council to advise the Na Ala Hele Trails and Access Program.
The Na Ala Hele Advisory Council is made up of nine members representing different trail and access road user groups.
Advisory councils provide a venue for constituent participation in program implementation.
Na Ala Hele was established in 1988 in response to concerns about the loss of public access to certain trails and the threat to historic trails from development. Na Ala Hele has become increasingly engaged in trail management and regulatory issues.
There are 118 trails and access roads in the statewide Na Ala Hele Trails and Access Program.
Applications can be mailed to: Division of Forestry and Wildlife, 3060 Eiwa St., Room 306, Lihue, HI 96766. Interested people can also pick up an application form at the DOFAW Office, 3060 Eiwa Street, Room 306 in Lihue.
