In 2017, the Foundation with the US Forest Service and community partners launched the Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project (STEW-MAP) to understand and map stewardship connections across North Kona and South Kohala districts, including Puu Waawaa. This research, now four months into an intensive survey process of these two districts, is a way to understand, highlight and then strengthen support for community-based leadership in natural resources stewardship.
