Honokohau National Historical Park

HFI entered into a contract with the National Park Service and expanded Jill Wagner’s seed bank contract to provide forest restoration services at the coastal dryland forest in Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park in South Kona, Hawai‘i Island. Jill is working with the National Park Service to develop a comprehensive program for coastal dryland forest management in Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, which will include projects involving plant propagation, seed collection and storage, maintenance of rare species, nursery management, and development of educational and interpretation materials that link Hawaiian traditional practices to the coastal dryland forest.

HFI entered into a Kona Coastal Restoration agreement with US Fish & Wildlife Service to conduct restoration work at Pu‘uhonua O‘Honaunau and Kaloko Honokohau National Historic Parks, expanding Jill’s seed collection, propagation, and outplanting services.
