The public can comment on the EA by visiting the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website.
In addition, Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park managers will conduct a site visit so that members of the public can learn about and discuss the ‘Aimakapā Fishpond and Wetlands Restoration Management Plan.
NPS has scheduled the site visit for Saturday, Dec. 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the canoe hālau, located on the beach at ‘Ai‘ōpio Fishtrap on the Honokōhau Harbor side of the Park.
