Hui Hanai ‘Aina Conservation Workdays at Waimea Valley

1st and 3rd Thursdays, 2nd Sunday and 4th Saturday of each month; subject to changes and cancellations

In an effort to assist the native forests on the ridges and slopes of Waimea Valley, the Conservation team and volunteers have been clearing invasive plants and planting tens of thousands of native Hawaiian plants. Several areas with lama, wiliwili, koa, ‘ohi‘a lehua, and alahe‘e have been identified as key restoration sites. Restoring the upland forests is known to enhance the watershed and therefore improve the water quality and quantity for the Valley.

We are asking for your kokua (help) in restoring our forests by coming out to volunteer on Forest Restoration Work Days. Please read the following FAQs before submitting your RSVP to attend Hānai 'Aina. RSVP IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND. You will be emailed back with a confirmation. Dates are posted on the homepage informational flyer. Dates vary month to month. Please realize that you are committing to the entire time 9am to 3pm. Unfortunately, we are not staffed to hike down earlier with individuals.

Typically takes place on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, 2nd Sunday and 4th Saturday of each month, but dates are subject to changes and cancellations.
