THE NATURE CONSERVANCY OF HAWAII
Located 6 miles northwest of Lanai City, on the island's western plateau.
The Nature Conservancy's literature states: On the plateau of western Lanai, several patches of an extremely rare dryland forest that once covered the lowlands of the main Hawaiian Islands make up the Kanepuu Preserve (590 acres). Kanepuu Preserve contains the largest remnants of olopua/lama dryland forest in Hawaii and is home to 49 plant species found only here, including three species that are federally endangered: the sandalwood ('iliahi), the Hawaii gardenia (na'u) and the vine Bonamia menziesii. Access to the Kanepuu Preserve is available for self-guided hikes. Informative guided trail signs beautifully designed by a Lanai resident will lead you along the trail. Guided hikes can be arranged for parties of five or more. For more information or to register for a hike or volunteer work party on Lanai please contact the Nature Conservancy's Honolulu office at (808) 537-4508 or visit their site.
