On Friday the Board of Land and Natural Resources heard you! Thanks to an overwhelming number of people submitting testimony, the Department of Land and Natural Resources was forced to admit that there was significant interest in the reopening of Haleakala Trail.
We’re a busy society. However, your decision to take the time to pen a note to BLNR made the difference. The state is opening the trail to limited access as the result of “US,” all standing together, fighting for people rights and public access.
This is a tough fight. Haleakala Ranch refuses to open access despite the overwhelming evidence of a public trail. The state refuses to protect the people’s rights. We will continue to need your support, as well as others, so please stand firm, and also share the story with others.
Stay tuned and we’ll keep up the good fight on our side. A lot of work is happening as we move toward trial set for January 2013.
