Mist House | Hana Hou! Magazine

The Mist House at the National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai is filled with some of the world’s rarest plants, endemic to the high-elevation cloud forests of Hawaii. It was fascinating exploring the foggy greenhouse with David Boucher for Hana Hou! Magazine.

Mokulua Nui Restoration | Hana Hou! Magazine

I had an awesome time kayaking out to the Mokulua islands off of Lanikai to photograph the native habitat restoration on Moku Nui with DLNR agent Amarisa Marie and the KSK crew of volunteers, air layering Naupaka plants to preserve the native Wedge-tailed Shearwater and Bulwer's Petrol habitat on the islands for Hana Hou! Magazine.
