Progress Made to Protect Alakoko

Mālama Hulē‘ia and The Trust for Public Land have partnered to help our Kaua‘i community purchase and protect Alakoko Fishpond as an outdoor classroom, native wetland habitat, a working fishpond, and one of the most cherished pieces of Kaua‘i’s history. The Trust for Public Land is facilitating a potential conservation purchase of the property, with Mālama Hulē‘ia as the proposed future owner and steward. Over 4,400 of you signed our statement of support online and hundreds sent heartfelt written testimonies in support of County Open Space funding.

THANKS TO YOU, the County of Kaua'i’s Public Access, Open Space, and Natural Resources Preservation Commission unanimously voted to support using open space funds to protect and acquire the property. The Trust for Public Land is currently in negotiations with the seller and conducting real estate due diligence. We will keep you all informed about next steps and how you can continue to kākoʻo (support) Alakoko.
