The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) is now seeking public comment on management actions it plans to implement in the Kealakekua Stewardship Area starting this summer. The plan represents a unified management approach to protecting the historical and cultural integrity of Kealakekua Bay and surrounding areas, as well as the fragile natural resources. Each of the divisions participating in this integrated resource stewardship effort has recognized the commonality of our values and each has made a "pact" with the other to extend, to the extent possible given existing or anticipated administrative rules, a cooperative approach in managing this area.
Land Division (LD)
Division of State Parks (DSP)
Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR)
Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW)
State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD)
Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR)
Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE)
The public is invited to view the proposed Kealakekua Stewardship Area Management Plan.
