These volunteer opportunities will be open to all ages and are geared towards families with younger kids as an opportunity for them to get involved, give back and learn.

The volunteer projects will generally be located in the botanical gardens and cultural sites and will focus on things like weeding, cleaning, site maintenance and invasive species removal. 

RSVP are required to attend the event. Gloves and tools will be provided along with a project that is suitable to the group.

The basic schedule for one of these volunteer days will be:

  • 9:00am Volunteers Arrive sign waivers

  • 9:15am Volunteer group will participate in the oli protocol

  • 9:30am Arrive at Volunteer Site

  • 11:30am Volunteer project is finished, volunteers are encouraged to get lunch at our snack shop and then explore the valley.*

*All participants Earn free entry into the valley for the day and may sign up for an optional cultural activity after lunchtime.

To reduce the risk of Covid, we recommend that everyone who visits here wears a mask in high traffic areas, when you are indoors and if you are not vaccinated, but as we are following state guidelines we do not require masks to be worn. We are also no longer requiring proof of vaccination to be shown for volunteers. We truly appreciate you being part of the effort to reduce the risks faced by our staff, visitors, volunteers and local community. As long as the Covid situation remains steady, we can continue with this current system, but some flexibility might be needed. If there are any cancellations or changes to the group size etc., I will send out an update to the volunteers. I appreciate your willingness to work with the uncertain nature of planning because we truly need the volunteers help here. We thrive with all of your help and aloha.
