“Take the flat boardwalk winding through the edge of Kealia Pond Natl. Wildlife Refuge to spot birds.”— Megan W
Across the road is the largest natural pond remaining on Maui. This pond and associated mudflats make up the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. This important sanctuary is where waterfowl from Asia and North America come to winter. Before gaining protection, this area was used as one of the first runways in Maui, and in WWII it was used to train Marines. Before all of that, however, it was a fishpond with a series of dikes used by ancient Hawaiians to raise fish to eat.
