Volunteers are the mainstay of our restoration projects. In the last two years, our volunteers have planted over 5,000 trees. Our volunteers work hard, make new friends, explore areas that other island residents rarely have access to, experience breathtaking views, and learn about our native plants. It is time well spent.
With the addition of the Pelekane Watershed Project, we will have two volunteer opportunities available each month. Volunteer activities include invasive weed control, planting, trailblazing, and trail maintenance.
Here’s how the day goes:
