Volunteer on Hamakua lands with PWF & Sierra Club
Volunteers on Vacation is a free program offered by Pacific Whale Foundation to help you easily find meaningful service projects to benefit Maui's environment. Visitors and residents can spend a few hours giving back to the local community while enjoying access to "off the beaten trail" places and learning about the history and natural ecosystem of the area.
Offered on the last Saturday of every month; volunteer with the Sierra Club Maui for a community service outing to remove trash and keep coastal trails open on 267 acres of Hamakua lands purchased by Maui County. The area is mostly shrub non-native vegetation, criss-crossed with trails, and surround by cliffs with striking ocean views. Most trails have moderate slopes and a few less used trails are steep.
The project runs from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm including recreational time to explore the area. Bring gloves, hand tools, water, hat, lunch and sturdy shoes. Meet at the Haiku Community Center at 9am.
