It’s about 17 acres total, with 11 acres of pond area. The mission of Waikalua Loko Iʻa is cultural preservation, restoration and education. We have 5 community workdays a year, please check us out at for more information.

Beloved kuaʻāina (fishers, farmers and people of the land throughout the islands) near and dear to Hawaiʻi nei have prepared and generously donated big, beautiful bottles of their special recipe chili pepper waters–for our fundraiser auction and for your table! Your generous winning bid is a donation to KUA and helps make this work possible. Auction ends at midnight on December 26, 2018. See here for a detailed explanation of rules. Our goal is to raise $10,000 with your generous kōkua!
