HFIA initiated a four-year restoration effort at the Kaloko Makai Dryland Forest Preserve in July 2011. The 154-acre dryland preserve was set aside to offset the impacts of constructing Ane Keohokalole Highway, which intersects with Hina Lani Street in North Kona. HFIA entered into the contract with Nan Inc., the company contracted to build the highway. Others involved in the project include the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Hawai‘i County Department of Public Works, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and landowners Stanford Carr Developments and Lanihau Properties.
The objectives of the Kaloko Makai Dryland Forest Preserve are:
- Provide restoration efforts for the Kaloko Makai Dryland Forest Preserve to protect and enhance an endangered native dryland forest habitat.
