TONIGHT! The Ka‘ū Preserve is part of the largest and most intact expanse of native forest in the state of Hawai‘i. Made up of four separate parcels of forested land, this Nature Conservancy preserve features mountainous ridgelines with narrow plateaus framed by steep valleys. A closed-canopy koa and ‘ōhi‘a forest shelters a lush understory of native ferns, where rare plants thrive, along with endangered forest birds like ‘apapane, ‘i‘iwi, ‘elepaio, ‘amakihi and ‘ākepa. John R. Replogle of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) will address how the TNC Preserve in Ka‘ū became a preserve and how the Three-Mountain Alliance has played an important role in this endeavor. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park presentations. Free.
