These companies and organizations have had the Makali'i Experience!

We love working on a variety of projects, including conservation, energy, fundraising, project management and of course, our favorite, Geographic Information Systems (GIS!)





"Sarah's background in GIS and natural resource management culminate in especially poignant maps that are usable for many audiences. She has the capacity to produce detailed maps that illustrate natural resources in a meaningful and simple way for people to see."

Erica von Allmen,

Auwahi Forest Restoration Project

"As a client, I found Sarah McLane Bryan to be very responsive, as well as respectful of our organization's limited budget. After one conversation, she quickly developed a realistic proposal, and was able to execute the contract and get to work right away. She has also been available on short notice for more than one critical need. Sarah is a dedicated professional."

Albert Perez, Director

East Maui Watershed Partnership


Working with The Makali’i Group and Sarah McLane Bryan has been superb and instrumental in keeping the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve (the largest private nature preserve in the state)at the forefront of data management. The customer service and expertise provided by The Makali’i Group exceeded our expectations. We are grateful for the partnership that we have with them and for the level of professionalism that they bring. Pu’u Kukui remains healthy and in a flourishing state thanks to the efforts.
