Kahala’s Initiative for Sustainability, Culture & the Arts

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is deeply committed to preserving Oahu’s land, ocean and culture for generations to come. So together with the Hawaii Legacy Reforestation Initiative, a non-profit organization, we created the Kahala Initiative for Sustainability, Culture and the Arts (KISCA).

KISCA is our commitment to restore part of the natural landscape of the island and plant 200,000 endemic Hawaiian Milo trees in Malaekahana on the North Shore of Oahu. It’s an important initiative that provides a brighter and more beautiful future for Hawaii.
