Natural Areas Association of Klahanie (NAAK)

NAAK is a volunteer group of Klahanie residents that are committed to keeping our natural areas (over 300 acres) healthy while providing a diverse habitat to protect and preserve our wildlife.

NAAK works closely with the Klahanie Director of Operations and recommends projects and activities that are aimed at controlling invasive non-native plant species, restoring habitat, maintaining the health of Yellow Lake and its aquatic life, and educating our community about native and non-native plants and wildlife that frequent the Klahanie area. 

NAAK also provides overall direction to contracted services that are retained to assist in the control of non-native plants throughout many of our larger natural spaces. In addition, NAAK hosts and conducts monthly work parties to remove non-native plants and restore habitat from April through October.  The community is encouraged to join these extremely worthwhile efforts.


Please stop by the HOA office and visit the NAAK section for more information. Also, feel free to pick-up the bird checklist and Klahanie brochures including:

·        native trees

·        native shrubs

·        native ground cover

·        birds around the Yellow Lake area

·        native plant demonstration garden

·        wildlife


If you would like more information or would like to join the monthly work parties, please contact the HOA office and they will have a NAAK member get in touch with you.  For more information, please contact NAAK chair, Bonnie Anderson at:
