Kohala Lihikai is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization founded in 2011 by a number of community groups and nonprofits that had been collaborating for over a decade on preserving the Kohala coast and public access.  Our roots are in over 50 years of work to preserve the North Kohala coast.  Founding organizations include:  Kamakani O Kohala Ohana, North Kohala Cultural Preservation Group, Malama Kohala Wahi Pana, North Kohala Public Access Group, andMalama Kohala Kahakai.

Kohala Lihikai partners regularly with Kohala Middle and High School, the North Kohala Community Development Plan Action Committee, Hawaii County, the Hawaii State Department of Transportation, and the North Kohala Community Resource Center as well as numerous other Kohala groups.

Our projects have expanded to include stewardship of preserved lands that includes our youth and that incorporates strategies to create economic development opportunities that support Kohala's lands and communities.  Projects have included erosion and wildfire mitigation, re-establishing native vegetation, educating visitors about how to minimize their impacts to the lands, preserving agricultural lands that include affordable land and housing for local farmers.

Aloha! Below are materials developed by the community groups working on preserving the North Kohala Coast.   Most of them are part of the public record of the Hawaii State DNLR and Hawaii County.  Contact us if you have questions.
