The governor is seeking applicants with balanced and inclusive perspectives, committed to the conservation and protection and sustainable use of Hawai‘i’s natural and cultural resources that are the public trust responsibilities of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR).

The DLNR manages public lands under its jurisdiction including forestry and wildlife, aquatic resources, state parks, boating and ocean recreation, historic preservation, and conservation and coastal lands.

These are volunteer board positions that require attendance at BLNR meetings on O‘ahu twice a month and more often as needed.

BLNR members are nominated and, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, appointed by the governor for a term of four years. At twice-monthly meetings the BLNR reviews and takes action on departmental submittals, including land leases and conservation district use applications.

Nominees are required to provide publicly viewable financial disclosure information prior to their appointment to the BLNR. For further information about the responsibilities of a BLNR member, please refer to Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (HRS) Chapter 171-4. For more information and to submit nominations please visit:
