This is a unique chance to be a part of our Waimea Valley Volunteers Team and help us care for this sacred valley. You will be going on an exclusive hike up to the central ridgeline called kalāhe'e and you will spend the day helping our conservation team care for the native forest land. *An RSVP is required.*

This is a conservation work day, aimed at restoring and protecting the native forest habitat. We will be hiking up onto Kalāhe`e Ridge, to plant native Hawaiian forest plants (when available), remove invasive species and participate in other conservation projects like mulching and seed collection. It is a moderate hike up to the site (takes about 45 minutes).

We are looking for a maximum of 15 people for any given date. RSVP in advance to reserve your spot.
