Having served on several boards and running a small
nonprofit in the past, Pacheco said he’s well aware of the
challenges nonprofit organizations face here, particularly
when it comes to getting money for general operations.
Hawaii Forest & Trail’s commitment to sharing the best
of the island’s natural resources also includes the Hawaii
Island Festival of Birds.
The festival, which
will celebrate its third
year Sept. 14-17, has
attracted a great mix
of people the last two
years, from mainland
birders looking to check
Hawaii birds off their
“life list” to island residents
curious about the
birds they see and hear
in their neighborhoods.
The event supports the Hawaii Wildlife Center as well as
the Hawaii Island Coast to Coast Birding Trail, a 90-mile trek
across the island that goes from sea level to 7,000 feet in elevation
and back again while spanning landscapes as diverse
as desert and rainforest.
Eventually, Pacheco would like to see the trail be both a
prominent feature and resource that people can easily access
to experience the variety of resources the island has to offer.
That fits perfectly into the company’s lifelong mission.
“It really showcases the incredible diversity that
Hawaii has,” he said.
