2019 Champions of the Land

HAWAIIAN ISLANDS LAND TRUST HONORS SUSAN AND JAC KEAN FOR LONG-TERM COMMITMENT TO PROTECTING MAUI’S MOST IMPORTANT LANDS

HILT is honoring Susan and Jac Kean as the 2019 Champions of the Land at the 18th annual Buy Back the Beach: Mālama Kīpuka Benefit Lū‘au on January 26, 2019.  

Each year, HILT recognizes a person, group, or organization that has had a substantial impact on land conservation in Hawaii. As founding members of HILT, and as part of a visionary group of multi-year donors, Susan and Jac helped realize the vision of a unified, statewide Hawaiian Islands Land Trust in 2011. Susan served first with the Maui Coastal Land Trust and then with HILT as a member of the Board of Directors until earlier this year. Through a variety of committee roles throughout her service, Susan devoted her creative energy to HILT’s mission to protect the lands that sustain us.

As co-owner of Kaupo Ranch, Jac Kean was integral to the conservation of HILT’s Nu‘u Preserve in 2011. The 82-acre preserve in Kaupo protects some of the healthiest coastlines across Hawaii, which provide habitat for several endangered bird species. Nu‘u is also home to numerous pre-contact archeological sites, including petroglyphs and traditional house sites on the preserve.

Susan and Jac, along with HILT’s many supporters, have enabled the organization to deliver an incredible amount of conservation success, protecting more than 18,000 acres across Hawaii. Support for the 2019 Buy Back the Beach benefit will enable HILT to deliver even more vital conservation work in Hawaii.

HILT invites its supporters to join in celebrating Susan and Jac Kean for their community leadership, generous philanthropy, and forward-thinking vision at Buy Back the Beach: Malama Kipuka. The fundraising gala provides support for HILT’s efforts to protect coastal lands, historical and cultural landscapes, and working farms and ranches across Hawaii.
