Despite common notions, a wide variety of flora can be seen everywhere in the southwest, and Kuaua Village is no exception. We are home to many different kinds of plants. Our instructional coordinator, Adrienne Boggs, has put together a more extensive list. If you see any plants we don't have on our list, we would love to hear about it!
