April 2023 - On April 1, 2023 Lānaʻi Culture and Heritage Center volunteers worked to restore Hawai'i's largest dryland forest and Lānaʻi's Ka Lanakila Church. Volunteers helped clean up the church through the removal of invasive plants like kiawe and lantana and fallen debris.
Nearly 50 volunteers worked to preserve the historic Ka Lanakila Church at Keōmoku. The church was built in 1903 and was in regular use until 1951 when the last of the Keōmoku community moved to the uplands of Lānaʻi. The Center restored and stabilized the church between 2010 and 2012 and installed educational signage to ensure this important piece of Lānaʻi's history would not be lost.
It is through the generosity of donors that this work is possible. Donations of any amount, large or small, matter greatly to us. Go here to give.
