Hi, there :) The 7.4 acre parcel that VAC leases from the State of Hawaii is a former Forest Reserve and Forester Headquarters and includes a 5.5 acre old-growth forest--named Niaulani. It was specifically stipulated in the lease of this land that VAC continue to take care of the 5.5 acre old-growth rain forest, and currently it is the best, most accessible and intact forest of its type in the entire state. The forest is the reason that the organization is present on the property. Thank you!... Read More
