The Governor’s Moloka`i Community Advisory Council will discuss resource and conservation management for Kawela at its next meeting. Research professor Robert H. Richmond with the Kewalo Marine Laboratory & the University of Hawaii at Manoa, will discuss “ridge-to-reef” stewardship of Kawela watershed and bay, and changes to land-use practices in other communities aimed at reducing and preventing environmental damage.

The meeting is open to the public and set for Tuesday, March 17, 2009, 3 p.m. at the Kulana O`iwi, DHHL / OHA Conference Room, 600 Maunaloa Highway, Kaunakakai.

Governor Linda Lingle created community advisory councils to give the neighbor islands a stronger voice in state government. The Moloka`i Community Advisory Council holds public meetings on the third Tuesday of each month to seek community input and advise the Governor of important issues in Moloka`i.

Members include Robert Granger, Janice Kalanihuia, Jersula Manaba, and Marlene Purdy.
