Kamehameha Lands — Restoration Strategies Discussion

Project coordinator, Jaya Dupuis met with environmental specialists for Kamehameha Lands,  Rebecca Mililani Browning, Amber Namaka Whitehead, and Natalie Kurashima, to discuss restoration strategies for Pu’u Kaliu, only a short ways up Highway 130 from Keau’ohana. Although the Pu’u Kaliu site has experienced a very rapid degradation of its native forest over the past few years, the rare ‘ohe tree and the endangered ha’iwale are relatively abundant there. Collaborating together may help to secure rare and endangered species in both locations.
