The Historic Hawaiʻi Foundation will honor the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Office of Maunakea Management for its outstanding preservation efforts of Maunakea with a 2017 Preservation Commendation Award at the upcoming 43rd Annual Preservation Honor Award Ceremony on May 19.

The foundation’s awards are the state’s highest recognition of preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and interpretation of Hawai‘i’s architectural, archaeological and cultural heritage.

The Preservation Commendation will be presented to OMKM, the Maunakea Management Board, Kahu Kū Mauna—a council comprised of Hawaiian cultural resource persons who serve as advisors—and Pacific Consulting Services Inc., for the preservation efforts related to the Long-Term Historic Property Monitoring Plan for UH Managed Lands on Maunakea.

“The preparation of this plan and implementation of regular, annual monitoring without a statutory requirement demonstrates the Office of Maunakea Management’s commitment to stewardship and best practices in cultural resource understanding, protection and preservation,” said Historic Hawaiʻi Foundation Executive Director Kiersten Faulkner. “We congratulate you on your exemplary preservation efforts.”
