  Dear friends, As I understand it, the final decision granting permission to fence off all public access to the historic coastal trail to Larsen's Beach is imminent. There have been meetings between landowners, ranchers leasing the land, and lawmakers which have been closed to the public, and we have not been allowed a public hearing. The permit to build the fence has been granted based on false information, such as claims that there is no wildlife (such as monk seals and albatross), archaeological sites, historic significance, or important limu gathering tradition at Larsen's. Last night a small group of us decided to create a grassroots public hearing by holding a gathering at Larsen's beach this Saturday. This will be an opportunity for us all to show our support for the public right to beach access. Please participate in any way that feels right to you. Expect media and police attention. We will hold strong to our commitment to practice Aloha. Attached is the announcement. Fact sheet to follow. Mahalo,  

Larsen's Beach Access Celebration Get the facts. Voice your opinion. Support public access.  

At Larsen's Beach. At the end of Larson's Beach Road, off Moloaa Road, off Kuhio Highway; Moloaa, Kauai, Hawaii
