Event description

Description

There is a special place on Kohala Mountain that tells the story of a native forest that once extended almost to the leeward coast more than two hundred years ago. Our forests are sacred spaces, and The Kohala Center is learning how to restore our dryland forests in ways that are pono and respect Hawai‘i’s past, present, and future.

Journey with us into the Koai‘a Corridor at one (or more) of our Hoa‘āina Stewardship Days! These experiences are designed to deepen our kinship with Kohala and our watersheds, restoring our ability as a community to engage and build healthy relationships with our native environment once again. Depending on the environmental conditions of the day, we will learn protocols such as oli (chants) and pule (prayers, blessings) for entering sacred spaces and encouraging growth and resilience, remove invasive plants and weeds, plant native trees and shrubs, and nurture young trees to grow healthy and strong.

As more of us become hoa‘āina—loving caretakers of our special places—we can more effectively fulfill our kuleana (responsibility) of aloha ‘āina stewardship in our communities and cherished places for generations.

Upcoming Hoa‘āina Stewardship Days (all times 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.):

Saturday, November 23

Space is limited, so please reserve your spots in advance! Details on where to meet and what to bring will be provided in an email upon completion of registration.
