Our commitment to understanding the history of the Pe‘ahi Stream valley has inspired a new program in 2022. “Pe‘ahi Stories” will bring together neighbors, local historians, knowledge-keepers, and our partners at Hawaiʻi Land Trust to “talk story.” We’ll uncover stories that animate our surroundings and enrich our stewardship of this special place.
We will record these conversations and share excerpts in a new blog series on our website and in our monthly newsletter. You may read the latest installments in this series at the bottom of this page.
We held three in-person Pe‘ahi Stories gathering on-site at The Merwin Conservancy in 2022, and conducted additional outreach by attending community events and volunteering to support our neighbors. Weʻre grateful to the neighbors and friends who were able to share with us and participate, along with our friend and partner Scott Fisher from Hawai‘i Land Trust.
