The Waimea Valley management transition options will be discussed before the end of this year, according to Office of Hawaiian Affairs administrator Clyde Namuo.

“Our intention is to develop a business plan,“Namuo explained. “Either we will find a new operator, or OHA will run it itself.”

Kat Adcox, administrative assistant for the The National Audubon Society, said the society will continue to manage the 1,875 acre valley but they are planning to leave in January.

“Things are basically the same every day, and it is as normal as it can be,” Adcox added.

The Audubon Society has manages the valley park since 2003. In 2006 plans were finalized between OHA, the city, state, and federal agencies to purchase Waimea Valley. Community groups are interested in preserving the land and protecting it from development.

Waimea Valley Audubon Center is located mauka of Waimea Bay at 59-864 Kamehameha Highway.
