OUR KIHEI, MAUI SITE


For the past year, The Kahoʻolawe Island Reserve Commission (KIRC) has opened the gates to its 8-acre Kihei Boat House property during monthly Kākoʻo iā Kahoʻolawe work days. With grant support through the Atherton Family Foundation, Hawaii Tourism Authority and Hawaii Community Foundation, hundreds of Maui residents and visitors have volunteered their time during these cleanup days in preparation for the imminent Kahoʻolawe educational walking trail, native plant nursery and traditional hale building projects.

With a new grant through the Maui County Product Enrichment Program (CPEP), the KIRC will continue the monthly Kāko'o iā Kahoʻolawe work days, propagating plants for Kahoʻolawe while exchanging history and information about the Reserve, and implement the Mahinaʻai Nights series; guided tours of the walking trail featuring historical information and stories of Kahoʻolawe, with live entertainment at the new hale and food vendors offering dinner.

These important community-building events invite individuals and groups to participate directly in the function and form of this developing public space, while caring for our community, raising awareness about Kahoʻolawe and inspiring and empowering our citizenry to conserve our environment. All are welcome.
