*Punahoa Heritage Forest starts with 1,900 acres on Hawai’i Island steeped in kīpuka forests. Itʻs a place that imagines a future where people and nature thrive. The land stewards seek to raise $100,000 to complete a comprehensive aerial survey of the land as a first step toward protecting and preserving the forest.
