Come visit He'eia Fishpond and experience what takes place in a Hawaiian traditional loko i'a. A visit to He'eia Fishpond can be enjoyed by groups of all interests and of all ages. Guests have an opportunity to tour and witness the 88-acre pond, to participate in service-learning projects aimed at sharing ways our Hawaiian ancestors cared for this special place, and learn of the storied landscape surrounding the fishpond in mo'olelo (stories) about the He'eia ahupua'a and Ko'olaupoko.
Participate in history and become a part of this ancient tradition that was established over 800 years ago. It is an eco-cultural learning experience that you will not forget.
