Seminar Speaker: Cheyenne Hiapo Perry, Mauna Kea Watershed Alliance
Seminar Title: Mauna Kea Watershed Alliance: E ho‘ohuli ka lima i lalo, grassroots management
Abstract: Hawai‘i's native forests play a critical role in our islands' water cycle and our forests are essential for water security. The management actions and investments we make today are essential to have sufficient water in the future and watershed protection is one part (arguably the first step) in the larger picture of water security. For over a century, public-private partnerships have managed Hawai‘i's mauka (upper elevation) forests by preventing the advance of invasive plants, animals and disease. The State's Watershed Partnerships facilitate this additional management through their collaboration with public and private landowners across Hawai‘i, which includes over 2.2 million acres -- roughly half the land in the entire state. The first Watershed Partnership in the State began in East Maui in 1991. Today, there are 10 active partnerships statewide and all the partnerships are made up of voluntary alliances of public and private landowners committed to the common value of protecting Hawai‘i's watersheds for water recharge, biodiversity and other important ecosystem services. This presentation will provide an overview of the Watershed Partnership model. MKWA Coordinator Cheyenne Perry will provide specific examples from their work managing vital watershed lands on Hawai‘i Island.
