The Ka Iwi Coalition is planning free public access guided hikes this June celebrating the historic community conservation success of the mauka lands along the Ka Iwi coast with Ka Iwi Explorations 2019. After 40 years of multi generational efforts toprotect the entire contiguous Ka Iwi coastline, mauka to makai, the last threatened undeveloped parcels are now protected in perpetuity.
The public is invited to join in a guided hike and experience the Ka Iwi lands that Hawaii’s community fought to protect – and was a progression of the people’s high visibility initiative known as Save Sandy Beach. This is a rare opportunity to explore a portion of the property and discover the natural and cultural resources of the area, and learn about plans for the future.
- Dates: Saturday, June 8, 2019 & Monday, June 10, 2019 (choose your date)
- Location: Meet at Kalama Village Center, Ka Iwi Education Center (501 Kealahou ST, Honolulu, HI 96825)
- Time: 6:00am – 11:00am (staggered time slots available for both easy and moderate hikes*)
- RSVP required: Raeanne at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808)380-7020. Additional event details provided upon RSVP.
The Ka Iwi Pop-Up Educational Center will be open on June 8 and 10 and located in Kalama Village Center. The center is open to all and has in-depth information, photographs, historic timelines and more about the protected Ka Iwi Coast Mauka Lands and surrounding area.
Livable Hawai‘i Kai Hui and The Trust for Public Land joined to work alongside countless volunteers, partners, and generous community members to purchase and protect these lands. Ka Iwi Explorations 2019 is brought to you by the Ka Iwi Coalition — a collaborative between the Sierra Club-Oahu Group, The Trust for Public Land, Livable Hawaii Kai Hui, Hui Nalu Canoe Club, DLNR Parks and Kamehameha Schools.
