The D.T. Fleming Arboretum is the Hawaii's oldest and largest arboretum for native plants. The arboretum is a 7 acre enclosure within a 16 acre cinder cone on Haleakala's southern slope.
In 2002, Friends of D.T. Fleming Arboretum was created to restore and preserve the rare plant species within the enclosure. Their mission is "Preservation through Protection, Propagation and Distribution."
Visitors able to volunteer with these folks should thank their lucky stars!! It is an amazing place, rich in history with a vision for the future.
Lend a Hand: Volunteers work the second Saturday of each month, 8:00 AM to noon followed by a picnic lunch. Light work under professional instruction. Lunch and Refreshments provided.
