Plant life exists everywhere – from gardens, rolling hills, in between pavement slabs in cities, to the more remote places in the world.
In the Hawaiian island of Kauai, for the past 1,500 years, Limahuli Valley has been a green haven, a wilderness preserved to exist just as the native Hawaiians experienced it.
Limahuli Garden and Preserve is located on the north shore of the island of Kaua’i in one of the most biodiverse valleys in the Hawaiian Islands. Home to dozens of endangered plants and birds found nowhere else on earth, Limahuli Garden and Preserve highlights native and culturally-significant species in an authentic Hawaiian landscape.
Many endangered plants thrive in the valley. The Limahuli Garden and Preserve hopes to continue their conservation efforts so these plants can survive for generations to come.
Limahuli Garden and Preserve Director Kawika Winter describes the beauty of the nature preserve and the importance of maintaining for future generations.
