The spirit of aloha In Hawaii, The Trust for Public Land works to protect places that honor Hawaiian heritage — like the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail.


A tribe returns to the California coast Readers were moved by the story of the Kashia people, reunited with their ancestral land after being forced inland more than a century ago.


+ This does my heart and soul good. We are, as a global community, becoming wiser and more respectful of each other and our surroundings. Thanks to all of those that made this wonderful accom- plishment happen. Doug Dawson, via Facebook

Protecting ‘America’s best idea’ + Thanks for the great article on the marvelous addition to Saguaro National Park. I live next to the Rincon Moun- tains, surrounded by these amazing cacti. Being situated on the top of a hill, I love watching the monsoon thunder- storms roll in—but, sadly, our two big- gest saguaros were killed by lightning. We had a snowstorm and week-long freeze a few years ago during which the park lost a number of the “ancients.” They’re not invincible, and they must be protected.

+ Reading about how The Trust for Public Land helped Yosemite grow by 400 acres sparked my interest, so I went to your website—where I saw that you also recently helped Saguaro National Park expand. This kind of work, helping preserve land for parks, is exactly why I make donations … a small token of thanks and appreciation for what your organization does. Michele Aubry, Alexandria, Virginia

+ The Island of Hawaii is our adopted home. I work in the community as a healthcare provider, and we have been blessed to be welcomed with aloha to our new home. In becoming members of the community, we respect the tradi- tions of those people who have lived here for hundreds of years, and who had such intimate relationships with the land and the ocean. We feel fortu- nate that these traditions are kept alive by current generations of Hawaiians. We look forward to walking portions of the trail and maybe hearing some of the stories being told in the waves, the land, and the wind.
