Perpetual Conservation Easements Secured on

Wai‘oli Valley Farmland

Story Pg. 5

In April, Hawaiian Islands Land Trust ("HILT") accepted two perpetual conservation easements on about 40 acres of wetland taro located in Wai‘oli Valley, in the Halele‘a district of Kaua‘i.  Donated by Gaylord and Carol Wilcox, and their daughters Nicole Pedersen, Darcie Gray and Eliza Wilcox, the conservation easements place permanent restrictions on the important farmland protecting it from future development and degradation.  

"If lands like these are not protected for the long term, we believe pressures that are evident now for housing development will win out, and the majority of Wai‘oli Valley will be housing before the century is out," commented Gaylord Wilcox.
