KFVE (K5) to Air Special Documenting Efforts

Since the beginning of the year, teams from the DLNR Divisions of State Parks and Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DLNR) have combined efforts to address illegal activity and to remove accumulated rubbish from the Napali Coast State Wilderness Park.  DLNR leadership previously announced a combined and concerted effort to restore this park to its wilderness character, by removing long-term illegal camps, shutting down illegal transportation to Kalalau Beach and by citing people who are in the area without permits.
