March 31, 2017—Join us on an expedition into the Koai‘a Corridor to plant native trees and shrubs such as koai‘a, wiliwili, and ‘ākia. Outplanting provides volunteers of all ages and abilities with an enjoyable combination of work and play, breathtaking scenery, and time with old and new friends. At the end of the day you’ll be able to step back and actually see the positive results of your efforts!

Meet at The Kohala Center’s offices at 8 a.m. and bring along a water bottle, sack lunch, and snacks. Boots or sturdy shoes are required and rain gear is highly recommended. Be prepared for any kind of weather: hot or cold, sunny or cloudy, windy or calm, wet or dry...knowing Kohala, probably all of the above! We provide tools, gloves, and cold drinking water. We’ll work, hike, explore, picnic, and then work a bit more, returning to Waimea by 3 p.m.
