Saturday workdays, other volunteer opportunities, and events are posted on our Instagram page: @paepaeoheeia

Paepae o He’eia relies heavily on a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer base to get much of the restoration and rehabilitation work completed. The work is physically rigorous but very rewarding. There are two ways to get involved as a volunteer at He’eia Fishpond and both require RSVP:

1) Saturday Community Workdays – These are large volunteer days on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of most months during the year. RSVPS ARE REQUIRED!! The day begins at 8:30am and ends at 12pm with lunch provided by our staff. We encourage individuals and large groups to sign up. Work available on community workdays is appropriate for ages 12 and up. Tasks include moving rock and coral, filling buckets, hauling floating barges through the water, cutting/pulling out invasive mangrove, invasive limu removal, trash pickup, and reconstruction of the kuapā. These workdays fill up early so please follow us on Instagram or look on our calendar to find a date that works for you and then contact us.

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.

Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.

Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
