Careful monitoring and restoration of native ecosystems within the ahupua’a of Waimea Valley shall demonstrate how cultural uses and gathering can encourage stewardship from within the local community. An ahupua’a, or wathershed, is an ancient Hawaiian concept of resource use and management of a particular division of land that connects the mountains to the reefs and the sea. We will continue our commitment to protect and restore our ahupua’a for further generations.Our FutureWaimea Valley will protect and enhance the native ecosystems throughout the ahupua’a. We will make our valley the model of how to incorporate the conservation of natural and cultural resources by fusing modern and ancient concepts. By using and promoting the use of alternative energy sources, we will conserve economic and environmental resources. In creating and sustaining partnerships with like-minded organizations, we will be part of a local movement of proper stewardship.    For more information, visit our website http://www.waimeavalley.net/
