               PLUM HARVEST OPENS AT KOKE‘E STATE PARK ON JULY 6

    LIHU‘E — The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will open this year’s
    season for plum harvesting at Koke‘e State Park, Kaua‘i, on Wednesday, July 6, 2011.

    “This year the plum crop is disappointing,” said Dan Quinn, State Parks Administrator.
    “There are very few plums and they are very small.”

    Permits to harvest will be available starting Wednesday, July 6 at the Koke‘e State Park
    Headquarters. There is no cost but forms must be completed and dropped in the box after
    harvesting. Harvesting is permitted between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. in designated areas. Each
    person will be allowed to take up to five pounds of plums per day for personal consumption.
    Other conditions will be specified on the plum harvesting permit. A short pole with a net
    will make harvesting easier.

    Plum pickers are reminded to help prevent forest fires and to pick up their litter. For more
    information, call the State Parks Office in Lihu‘e at 274-3445.

                                                    ###
