Volunteer with Coral Reef Alliance & Pacific Whale Foundation
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.
Clean water is vital for both communities and coral reefs. Sediment and nutrient pollution from land makes its way to the ocean, threatening coral reef and human health. Revegetating eroding landscapes with plants can stabilize soil, absorb nutrients and sediments, and prevent pollutants from reaching the ocean. As a volunteer, you will help the Coral Reef Alliance revegetate stream banks with native plants, create sand bag corridors, and take part in other fun stream restoration activities up in the West Maui Mountains.
Project runs from 8:30am to 12:30pm on the second Saturday of every month. Bring a sack lunch, water bottle, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, rain gear and closed-toe shoes.
