Seminars On Shoreline Management Issues
HONOLULU - The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), in conjunction with the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program, will hold the final two in a series of free statewide integrated shoreline seminars -- in Honolulu on Thursday, April 6, and on Molokai on Tuesday, April 25.
The seminars aim to highlight the efforts of the State to improve coordination between state, federal and county agencies tasked with shoreline management and its many challenges.
"We have taken these seminars, for a second time now, to all islands. We believe these seminars are timely and necessary to inform government agencies, businesses, landowners, homeowners and community associations on the latest approaches to protecting our precious coastal resources," said DLNR chairperson Peter Young.
“There continues to be growing interest in the range of actions that can address coastal erosion and hazard mitigation, regulatory issues and common questions regarding coastal land use and these seminars will be very helpful for persons looking for solutions,” Young said.
Registration is not required to attend the seminars. Walk-ins are welcome.
The final two seminars will be held as follows:
On Oahu, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday April 6, in the DLNR Land Board Conference Room, Kalanimoku Building, Room 131, 1151 Punchbowl St.
On Molokai, from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday April 25, at the Queen Liliuokalani Children’s Center, Makalapua Conference Room, Kulana Oiwi Complex, in Kalamaula.
