Last yearʻs symposium at the 2014 Hawaii Conservation Conference we took part in on the topic of Wildfires in Hawaii. 

For each of the past few years, HWMO has had the honor of speaking at the Hawaii Conservation Conference. This year, we are invited to speak at the Conservation Mauka to Makai in West Hawaii Symposium, put together by our partners from NOAA and TNC. We will be giving a talk on August 4th (1 p.m.) about Wildfires in West Hawaii - Wildfire Occurrence, Impacts, and Mitigation Efforts from Mauka to Makai.
