Each unit of the NWRS was established for specific purposes. We use these purposes to develop and prioritize management goals and objectives within the NWRS mission and to guide which public uses occur on a refuge. The planning process is a way for us and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives for the best possible approach to wildlife, plant, and habitat conservation, while providing for wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities that are compatible with a refuge’s establishing purposes and the mission of the NWRS. We will conduct a planning process that provides opportunities for the public, Federal and local government agencies, Native Hawaiian organizations, and others to participate in issue scoping and public comment. We request input for issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions for the future ¯ management of the Hanalei, Hule‘ia and ¯ Kılauea Point NWRs. We will also give the public an opportunity to provide input at open houses to identify issues and concerns. All information provided voluntarily by mail, phone, or at public meetings becomes part of our official public record. We will handle requests for comments received in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, NEPA, and other applicable statutory authorities. The Refuges ¯ ¯ Hanalei, Hule‘ia, and Kılauea Point National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs) are part of the Kaua‘i National Wildlife Refuge Complex (NWRC or Complex). Hanalei NWR, located along the lower reach and floodplain of the Hanalei River along the northern shore of Kaua‘i, was established in 1972 for the purpose of providing habitat for Hawai‘i’s endangered water birds and the ¯ Hawaiian goose. Hule‘ia NWR, located ¯ along the Hule‘ia River on Kaua‘i’s eastern shore, was established in 1973 for the purpose of providing habitat for Hawai‘i’s endangered water birds. ¯ Kılauea Point NWR, located at the northern most point of Kaua‘i, was established in 1985 for the purpose of ¯ ¯ providing habitat for seabirds, nene, and native plants, to preserve the historic light station, and provide environmental ¯ education to the public. Kılauea Point NWR’s purpose was expanded in 2004 to include conserving and managing the biological diversity of native coastal strand, riparian, and aquatic habitats, VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:33 Sep 25, 2009 Jkt 217001 and continue the protection and recovery of endangered Hawaiian water birds and other endangered birds, including the Hawaiian goose. Scoping: Preliminary Issues, Concerns, and Opportunities We have identified preliminary issues, concerns, and opportunities to be addressed in the CCP; additional issues may be identified through public scoping. During the CCP planning process, the Service will analyze methods for protecting the resources of the Hanalei, ¯ ¯ Hule‘ia, and Kılauea Point NWRs while providing quality opportunities for wildlife-dependent recreation. The Service will evaluate public use programs and facilities, cultural and historic resources, cooperative farming, alternative transportation opportunities, wetland management, land acquisition, and endangered species interactions with humans. ‘‘Talk Story’’ Sessions To begin the public scoping phase of the planning process, we will hold a number of facilitated ‘‘Talk Story’’ Sessions for the public, Refuge neighbors, and others. These facilitated sessions are designed to gather information about local knowledge and cultural ties for each of the refuges, including stories passed down through generations of living on, working on, and enjoying the Refuges’ lands, waters, and natural and cultural resources. These sessions will be open to the public and held in communities near the Refuges to encourage local participation. Public Open House Meetings We will also hold Public Open House Meetings as part of public scoping to answer questions, obtain comments on Refuge management issues, and learn about natural resource issues important to the public, the State, and other agencies and organizations. In order to incorporate the information we gain from the Talk Story Sessions into the Public Open House Meetings, the meetings will be held several weeks after the Talk Story Sessions. We will provide additional opportunities for public involvement throughout our CCP planning process. Public involvement opportunities will be announced in local news media, on our websites, and through our mailing list.
