Ala Kahakai Historic Trail Preservation

Shoreline in Ala Kahakai Historic Trail National Park
Since 2000, the National Park Foundation funded the preservation of Hawaii's Ala Kahakai Trail and the surrounding natural land and marine ecosystems.

A National Park Foundation Grant funded this project that focused on creating small scale informal music events at three specific communities along Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail so the local community could share what's unique about their place. Songs, hula, and food are some of the elements that brought focus to the special characteristics of each community. Groups that manage their segments of the trail were invited to co-produce the event with the Ala Kahakai Trail Association (ATA), Ala Kahakai NHT's non-profit partner.
