Every Friday the Maui Coastal Land Trust volunteers visit a remarkable coastal area that’s rich in Hawaiian history. Once a thriving Hawaiian village, and a dairy, this prime wetland was slated for development. Now this area of Waihe'e is held in trust for future generations by Maui Coastal Land Trust.
The good folks at Maui Coastal Land Trust have been cutting brush and invasive trees on some of Maui's last remaining sand dunes and coastal spring fed wetland. Seeds are collected and native plants are being replanted by volunteers in the ancient inland fishpond.
Lend a hand: The program takes place from 8:00 a.m. until noon and includes four hours of work. Bring water, snacks, lunch, and sunscreen, and wear closed-toe shoes, pants and hat/sun protection.
Contact Scott Fisher in advance to sign up.
