A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:
In the summer of 2012, HPU signed a cooperative agreement with the Windward Oahu Soil and Water Conservation District. By becoming a cooperator to the district, HPU agrees to develop a conservation plan for the Hawai`i Loa Campus in Kaneohe, HI. By signing the cooperative agreement, HPU also agrees to maintain all conservation structures established, securing the required permits for work regulated by any other ordinance, code, or agency, refrain from starting any ground work or installing any conservation practices until a completed conservation plan is developed and approved by the district, permit access to the Department of Land and Natural Resources Conservation Service to monitor work, and develop a grading plan where large scale filling and grading is involved.
