The Waikalua Loko I'a was lovingly preserved and managed from 1995-2015 by Kia `i Loko (caretakers) of the Waikalua Loko Fishpond Preservation Society (WLFPS). An intensive effort by students, community groups, public and private partners, and individual members of the greater community, the project's stewards breathed new life back into the 400 year-old fishpond. As each stone was put back on the wall and each native plant took root, a foundation was laid for a healthier and sustainable future, honoring the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Kane'ohe ahupua'a. In 2016, the board of directors of the WLFPS declared their mission was successfully completed, and the fishpond was given to the Pacific American Foundation Hawaii for future care and preservation. It is now one of the largest community classrooms on the island.
The Moonlight Concert Series will take place at Waikalua Loko I'a, 45-231 Kula'uli Road on Sunday, April 29, 2018. Gates open at 5 pm and the concert goes from 6 – 9 pm.
