Digging Through Time | Hana Hou! Magazine

This summer I had the enormous pleasure of exploring inside the 10,000 year old Makauwahi Cave in the Māhāʻulepū Valley of Kauai, with David & Lida Burney, paleoecologists who discovered the cave and have reforested the area with its native plants. Check out the current December/January Issue of Hana Hou! the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine to see the full story.

Alula is an endangered species and native plant in the Makauwahi Cave.

Burney claims the Māhāʻulepū Valley, is named after this rock.

Maiapilo is an endemic species to Kauai and a native of the Makauwahi Cave.
