James Campbell NWR
Land Protection Planning Study

Purpose of Land Protection Planning Study:
The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of: acquiring and managing high quality habitats as part of the James Campbell Refuge; conserving the native wildlife species that occur there; and participating in the Kahuku Watershed Project.

Current Status:
Planning Update 1 was distributed at the end of April 2004, describing the study and requesting comments from the public. Planning Update 2 was distributed the first week of March 2005, it included a brief summary of the public scoping comments we received, a map of the study area, and an update on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers watershed project. A more comprehensive summary of scoping is available in the Scoping Report. All of these documents are posted below.

On May 25, 2006, legislation passed establishing an approved Refuge boundary that adds approximately 750 acres to the Refuge linking the Refuge's two units--the Ki'i Unit and Punamano Unit separated by nearly a mile--into a single unit of protected wildlife habitat totaling approximately 1,100 acres. Planning Update 3 provides further explanation.
