Love science? Volunteer at Kahaluu Bay


Citizen Science is a volunteer program to monitor and track environmental conditions at Kahaluu Bay.

Anyone with an interest in learning about water quality, sampling, data interpretation, and a healthier environment can be a volunteer—no previous experience or scientific knowledge is required. Training is provided by Kahaluu Bay Education Center (KBEC).

The next training is 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, at Kahaluu Beach Park, next to the KBEC van.

Citizen Science volunteers collect samples weekly at specific sites in Kahaluu Bay. The data helps the center track the health of the bay, understand how events such as algae blooms impact water quality and the bay’s overall health, and act to correct any problems before they impact Kahaluu’s vibrant and colorful marine life.

To learn more or sign up for the training, contact Rachel Silverman at or call (808) 887-6411.

Kahaluu Bay Education Center is a partnership between The Kohala Center and the County of Hawaii. KBEC promotes environmental stewardship to ensure the bay remains a healthy and welcoming place for residents and visitors alike.
