Gov. David Ige is seeking “qualified and dedicated” people who are interested in serving on the state Board of Land and Natural Resources.

According to a press release Wednesday, Ige wants people “with balanced and inclusive perspectives, committed to the conservation and protection and sustainable use of Hawaii’s natural and cultural resources that are the public trust responsibilities” of the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

It’s a volunteer gig that meets on Oahu at least twice a month.

The term is for four years and requires state Senate approval.

Nominees must provide financial disclosure information that will be open to public scrutiny.

The DLNR, says Ige’s office, “manages public lands under its jurisdiction, forestry and wildlife, aquatic resources, state parks, boating and ocean recreation, historic preservation, and conservation and coastal lands.”

Current Board Chair Suzanne Case is the executive head of the DLNR.
