Since our inception in 1998, one of the main goals of ‘Ao‘ao O Nā Loko I‘a O Maui has been to revitalize Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond so that future generations may enjoy it as we do today. We have been able to move toward this goal by working directly with the community to restore and maintain its walls and we also have had waves of funding which allowed us to hire skilled masons to restack the wall in various years.
At this time, our main work is maintaining the wall by using school and community organization volunteers to help rebuild small portions of the wall and transfer rocks from one area of the pond to the other. We are also actively seeking funding to eventually hire a new group of skilled masons to regularly restore and maintain the wall.
We will be hosting a community work day in the near future so that volunteers can come and help us restore portions of the wall that have fallen. Please check back periodically at this website for our next community work day date.
