Our Mission

Uhiwai is dedicated to protecting and restoring the native ecosystems and watersheds of the leeward slopes of Haleakalā. We set out to help improve the quality and quantity of the freshwater resources. Preserving these areas allow us to perpetuate Hawaiian cultural resources and practices, support rural economic opportunities and engage the Maui community in our efforts. 

Uhiwai is the heavy mist that settles on the slopes of the mountain at 4,000-6,000 feet elevation,offering fresh water to the forest and people of the region.
