Here you can learn about the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife’s (DOFAW) current and proposed Kauaʻi projects.  Hikers, Hunters, cultural practitioners, and other visitors are the eyes and ears of the forest and can greatly inform where the DOFAW should focus its limited resources.

On the interactive map below, click on any number of map layers, or overlay them on top of each other to learn more about trails, hunting areas, shelters, as well as potential new projects or changes in the future. Many of the new projects or changes take funds that we don’t yet have and/or time to accomplish. After using the below Story Map and reading more in this website, please give us your manaʻo by emailing us at [email protected].
