Turtle Conservation at Timbers Kiawah
Every spring, endangered sea turtles—mostly loggerheads—make their way to Kiawah Island to nest.
In 2019, Timbers Kiawah committed to helping save the turtles by teaming up with Peter Millar—a high-end apparel brand—to create a limited-edition beach cruiser to raise awareness for turtle conservation.
All proceeds from the bike sales are donated to the Town of Kiawah’s Turtle Patrol program.
The conservation initiative also includes educational programs. Leaders from the island’s Turtle Patrol are engaged with Timbers Kiawah to lead education for adults and fun activities for Timbers’ smallest residents, the Timbers Tykes, that highlight the importance of recycling, keeping beaches clean and protecting the loggerhead sea turtle nests.
The Farm at Hokuala Giving Back to the Community
An old overgrown golf course was converted into a full-scale farm to produce food for the restaurant including a wide variety of produce, fresh herbs, a fruit orchard, and several “canoe crops”.
The Farm at Hokuala focuses largely on giving back to the community. The farm team has crafted an agriculture education program and works with sustainability-focused nonprofit Malama Kauai to provide harvest surpluses to food banks and local schools—all in addition to providing farm-fresh fare to Hualani’s Restaurant.
