Mālama the native forest at Hāmākua Marsh


Healthy Climate Communities

Join us in caring for a community native forest on the watershed of Hāmākua Marsh State Wildlife Sanctuary. We have been planting and caring for a variety of native trees and plants, including endangered native plants,  since 2015. When you visit you will have an opportunity to do a bird walk and learn about the native endangered wetland birds living on site. We have a core of regular volunteers as well as many who are able to visit just once. We can also arrange events at a time to suit your schedule for groups of 10 or more. The work often involves removing invasive species that are encroaching on our plants. It is a beautiful place and we love it when people come to experience it.
