Volunteering on Vacation - Maui, Hawaii sponsored by Pacific Whale Foundation

Hawaiian Islands Land Trust

With our partner, Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (formerly Maui Coastal Land Trust), you'll visit a remarkable coastal area that's rich in Hawaiian history and bird watching. It's also home to some of Maui's last sand dunes. You'll help to remove invasive species and clear brush and weed. The program takes place every Friday from 7:45 a.m. to noon and includes four hours of work. Bring water, snacks, lunch, and sunscreen, and wear closed-toe shoes, pants and hat/sun protection. Be sure to call at least 24 hours in advance to sign up! From the U.S. Mainland, please call 1-800-942-5311, or call 808-249-8811. In exchange for your efforts you will receive a free Volunteering on Vacation tote bag!

Location: From Wailuku, head out Kahekili Highway to Waihe’e.  Just past the ball field in Waihe’e turn right on Halewaiu Rd.  Go down to bottom of hill and turn LEFT into the dirt road leading into the cane grass.  When you get to the beach parking area, either park there or you can drive into the old dairy area through the road on the left (you will need to open and close the gate). The road into the old dairy area winds through dune grasses until you come to a clearing. A green caretakers house will be on your right. Please meet the group leader at the old dairy building on your left. 

Use Google Maps to find the entrance to the refuge using the address: 155 Halewaiu Rd, Wailuku, HI.
