Haleakalā National Park and the Pacific Whale Foundation are recruiting local volunteers for a recurring plant removal project!
Volunteers will physically remove young pine trees and/or other small invasive plants from the Summit District.
Volunteers will be picked up at Ma`alaea Harbor at 7:30 am or at the main parking lot of the Pukalani Community Center at 8:00 a.m. Participants will work for three hours, visit the summit, and be dropped off by 3 p.m. Volunteers should bring water, snacks, and sun protection; wear sturdy shoes and dress in layers; and be prepared to hike on uneven surfaces. Call Haleakalā National Park volunteer coordinator at (808) 572-4487 if you have any questions.
Volunteers will receive a Hawai’i Tri-Park Pass after 12 volunteer hours. This pass is valid for one year and covers admission to Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historic site and Haleakalā National Park.
Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance by contacting the Pacific Whale Foundation at (808) 249-8811.
