A glimpse of the past and a hope for the future
Jan. 2017 • Friends
We had a private tour of Waikoloa Dry Forest Preserve on Jan. 4. Often when I drive this part of the island it seems the vegetation is monotonous. WDFP reveals the richness this land used to have. It also reveals what a dedicated group of people can accomplish. I'm worked in land restoration so I have special respect for what they have accomplished. Everyone visiting the island should visit this place. I recommend contacting them directly to discover other tour options.

These guys are doing a great job educating people about the island's natural habitats and how we can help to preserve it. These forests are being damaged regularly, so it is nice to see someone is taking some initiative in preservation.

Wiliwili

Actually enjoyed this during the annual wiliwili festival ( local endangered dry forest tree). It was a lot of fun, with very informative and helpful docents. They clearly care about the environment and the ecology of this area.

This is a wonderful way to learn about the plants of Hawaii, especially the Wiliwili, but other endangered plants of the islands.

Volunteer for a morning, help re-forest a preserve near Waikoloa Village
Mar. 2015 • Friends
You are on vacation and aren't up to volunteering the entire time such as an Earth Watch adventure. But you can help out by spending a morning planting wiliwili trees. This is usually on a Saturday, but you can also arrange to visit the preserve at other times (wdfi@waikoloadryforest.org) This is a grass roots organization doing a great job at restoring a special habitat. Everything mauka of the resorts wasn't always just acres of fountain grass. See what plants had grown in this area and help restore this habitat. For other volunteer opportunities: The Nature Conservancy has work parties usually the 3rd Saturday of the month at their Kiholo preserve (must rsvp, rmost@TNC.org) or Kona Hiking Club does trail work too. Mahalo for taking some time to care about Hawaii lands.
