Many native species in the Hawaiian Islands are nearing extinction due to the massive influx of invasive plants and animals. Maui Cultural Lands focuses on replanting and strengthening the native plants, ensuring their continued vital role in Hawaiian culture.
In addition to Project Malama Honokowai, MCL cares for native species near the wind farm above Maʻalaea through Project Malama Kaheawa-Hanaʻula.
The Kaheawa project meets every Sunday at 9:45am in the parking lot adjacent to Carl’s Jr. in Maʻalaea. Dress for cold and prepare for rain (and getting dirty!). Wear closed-toe shoes. Bring lunch and water, and gloves if you have them.
