Become part of Hawaii’s conservation story

Join North Shore Community Land Trust on the fourth Saturday of each month in our effort to restore "lako pono" (holistic abunance) to the ahupuaʻa of Waialeʻe on the North Shore of Oʻahu. This includes restoring habitat for native plants, fish, and birds; tending to loʻi kalo (taro patches); clearing a traditional loko wai (freshwater fish pond); planting māla (dry-land-agroforestry systems; and gathering as a community to learn and grow together. Activities will vary from month to month and all these efforts will help us to reach our shared vision of Waialeʻe Lako Pono.


Remember to bring:

  • Close-toed footwear and clothing for outdoor work
  • If you plan to enter wetland: tabis, water shoes, or old sneakers you don't mind getting wet and muddy (slip-on rubber boots donʻt work well, the water is too deep.)
  • A filled reusable water bottle
  • Sun protection: reef-safe sunblock, hat, etc.
  • Bug spray (preferably "natural"/ non-DEET) and/or long sleeves and pants
  • Optional: Your own gardening gloves and weeding tools, if you want (we will also provide clean gloves and tools)
  • Optional: A change of clothes and a bag or container for your wet shoes and clothes
  • Optional: a pot-luck snack or dish to share


Our meeting spot is at 58-207 Kamehameha Hwy. near the Sunset Beach / V-land area. Click this link for the exact location. Coming from either direction on Kamehameha Hwy., turn makai (toward the ocean) onto a gravel road. Around 100 yards down the gravel road, our parking area will be on the right-hand side, near a pink barn.
