Mahina‘ai Night

By Maui Now Staff

The Kahoʻolawe Island Reserve Commission (KIRC) will present Mahina‘ai Night on Friday, July 31, 2015,  from 6 to 8 p.m. at its Kīhei boat house property, an eight-acre parcel designated to the KIRC in 2002 as the future site of a Kahoʻolawe learning center.

The event is free and open to the public.

The theme of this month’s event is The Restoration Program.


Part of a series of full moon events geared to raise awareness of and access to Kahoʻolawe, the event includes a guided tour of the KIRC’s new walking trail. The 45-minute tour begins promptly at 6 p.m.


The event also features live music by UH Maui College’s Institute of Hawaiian Music from 7 to 8 p.m., food vendors and an opportunity to talk story with Kahoʻolawe history, restoration and culture experts.

Attendees are asked to RSVP online.

Flashlights and closed-toe footwear are strongly recommended for walking on a mulch-lined path through kiawe trees.


There are no ATM’s on-site; bring cash or checks to purchase food, beverages or to make a contribution to the Kaho‘olawe Rehabilitation Trust Fund.

Park at the Kīhei Boat Ramp and follow signs for the Kah‘oolawe Island Reserve Commission just a short walk to the boat house site at 2780 South Kihei Road.

The program is made possible by a grant through the Maui County Product Enrichment Program.
