    Throughout 2015, The Kahoʻolawe Island Reserve Commission 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 to prepare thet Kahoʻolawe educational walking trail, native plant nursery and traditional hale building projects. Stay tuned for upcoming community-building events that 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.
