The Lānaʻi Community Stewardship Program is part of Kuahiwi a Kai, an initiative supported by National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Pūlama Lānaʻi to restore health to the Keomoku Region of Lānaʻi.
Our portion of the program focuses on engaging the skills of community hunters to aid in game management efforts within the project area. Volunteer hunters will also learn more about the cultural and historical significance of place. Together, we can work towards a future where the land lives and our people thrive. Ola ka ʻāina, ola ke kanaka!
