On behalf of Ho‘olaulima ia Kawainui, Ahahui would like to thank you for your interest and support of our community outreach for Kawainui. For the past 6 years, Ho‘olaulima has been gathering background information on Kawainui-Hamakua for the development of an interpretive plan. Now that we have inventoried the natural and cultural resources, developed some interpretive themes (messages), identified the potential audience, and gathered information about various interpretive techniques, we believe it’s time to share this information with the community and seek their input on the interpretive opportunities. We are asking the community to share what they would like to see at Kawainui. The input we receive will allow us to move forward with the interpretive planning process and we hope to weave our interpretive recommendations into the Kawainui Master Plan update being conducted by DLNR.

You can download the flyer for our first round of six public outreach meetings in the Kailua community to be held from September to November. Please join us at one or more of these meetings. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in getting the word out to your friends and contacts. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and exploring ways to share the special resource of Kawainui-Hamakua with the community and visitors.
