Watershed Conservation

Lāna‘i Hale plays an important role in the water cycle. John Wesley Powell, a scientist geographer, describes watersheds as “that area of land, a bounded hydrologic system, within which all living things are inextricably linked by their common water course and where, as humans settled, simple logic demanded that they become part of a community.”

Here are some of our activities for protecting and enhancing this resource:
