Kalaemanō Cultural Reserve


The Kalaemanō Culture Reserve, 104 acres of the vast landscape of the ahupua'a Ka'ūpūlehu, an ancient land division that sweeps down from the summit of Hualālai, through its forests, and transitions into the grass plains, and onto the lava fields, was set aside to encourage active stewardship and maintenance of the area's resources so that they may be preserved for future generations. The historic and beloved area of Kalaemanō makes up the coastal section of Ka'ūpūlehu Ahupua'a, which is filled with many culturally important sites and resources.
