Waialeʻe Volunteer Workday

Join North Shore Community Land Trust on the third Saturday of each month in our effort to restore native ecosystems and traditional Hawaiian agriculture at Waialeʻe, Oʻahu. Activities include removing invasive weeds, planting and tending Hawaiian crops, and other tasks suitable for all ages and skill levels. You will have the option to enter the wetland so if you are interested please plan accordingly.

Remember to bring:

  • Footwear and clothing for outdoor work (close-toed recommended)
  • If you plan to enter wetland: tabis, water shoes, or old sneakers you don’t mind getting wet and muddy (slip-on rubber boots won’t work! Old athletic shoes work great!)
  • A reusable water bottle with at least 2 liters of water
  • Sun protection: reef-safe sunblock, hat, etc.
  • Mosquito protection: bug spray (preferably non-DEET) and/or long sleeves and pants
  • Optional: Your own gardening gloves and weeding tools, if desired (we will also provide clean gloves and tools)
  • Optional: A change of clothes and a bag or container for your wet shoes and clothes
  • Optional: a pot-luck snack or dish to share

Our meeting spot is near 58-207 Kamehameha Hwy. Refer to the links below for the precise location. Coming from either direction on Kamehameha Hwy., turn makai (toward the ocean) onto a gravel road. Around 100 yards down the gravel road, our parking area will be on the right-hand side, near a pink barn.

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 🤙
