Friends of HNVP forest project (April 16)

* 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 16

Volunteer Forest Restoration Project: We will plant native species in the koa forest on the Mauna Loa strip of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We will work in a former cattle pasture that is being transformed into a diverse native forest by planting nursery-reared seedlings. We may also help clear vegetation from around previously planted seedlings, plus learn about the park’s native forest restoration program.

Volunteers should be at least 14 years old, and be able to hike at least one mile over uneven terrain. Our goal is a crew of 12 people, and pre-registration is required.

To register, contact Friends of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park at (808) 985-7373 or For further information, visit
