La‘i‘Ōpua Dryland Preserve restoration and outreach activities are part of the “Connections Not Forgotten” project, a dryland restoration project to maintain native forest habitats while engaging volunteers in stewardship activities at Kaʻūpūlehu Dryland Forest, Pālamanui Dry Forest Preserve, La‘i‘Ōpua Dryland Preserve, and the shoreline salt ponds at Kalaemanō Culture Center.

Through Connections Not Forgotten, coordinators and educators are merging traditional knowledge of local habitats and cultural knowledge into restoration activities like dispersing seed, planting seedlings and weeding.
