Talk Story on the Land Series Connects Locals and Visitors With Unique Hawaiian Landscapes

Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (HILT) has launched its 2017 “Talk Story on the Land” environmental education series of free, guided hikes across the islands.  The popular series aims to connect residents and visitors with the ‘āina (land).  

“One of the best things about Hawai‘i is our storied places and our beautiful natural and cultural resources. We want to share these stories and these places that have been preserved for future generations,” said Kawika Burgess, CEO of HILT.

What is a Land Trust?

A land trust is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that works to permanently conserve lands that contribute to a community’s health, well-being, and unique character.  These may include lands with water resources that ensure clean drinking water, rich working lands that have potential to bring locally-sourced food to a community, lands that ensure public access to the coastline or open spaces, historic and/or cultural sites that allow us to connect to our past, or beautiful scenic lands that enrich our emotional and mental well-being.
