Fern’s Garden at Sunset Ranch

At Sunset Ranch, we continue to work hard to expand our botanical garden elements.  We hope to continue to add more and more native species throughout the property.  Moreover, in honor of the owner's grandmother, Fern, we have officially dedicated a portion of the property to her memory:  Fern's Garden.

Thank you to Kay Lynch and Waimea Valley for making our vision of Fern's Garden a reality.  Kay helped assist with clearing and planting thirteen native fern species in our garden this past month!  We look forward to continued efforts with Kay to manage and build our native fern collection.  She, after all, is the expert!

Native Tree Planting

We are absolutely thrilled to introduce our Native Tree planting program at Sunset Ranch. Concurrent with the launch of our Site Tour Experiences, our guests are now provided the unique opportunity to plant a native tree in the mauka regions of Waimea Valley (and in some cases Sunset Ranch), all in the spirit of land conservation and forest restoration.  A portion of proceeds will be donated to the land conservation cause in Hawaii.

The Native Tree planting program was made possible by an operating agreement with Hi'ipaka, LLC, the owner and operator of Waimea Valley.  As a result, Sunset Ranch guests are provided exclusive access to newly cleared trails and lookouts in the mauka regions of the valley.  We have just recently begun to eradicate invasive plants and trees as we thoughtfully reintroduce native plants with the objective of meaningfully advancing forest restoration in this region of the North Shore.
