Volunteer in Maui Nui

Anyone who picks up trash in a natural area is a volunteer, but volunteering to help with specific projects or needs is a great way to give-back to the ʻaina, community and to meet others doing the same.  Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the Maui Nui DOFAW Branch does not currently offer any regularly recurring volunteer opportunities. However, you can register below with iVolunteer, the volunteer event management system used by DLNR, to be notified of future opportunities. Or you can contact Jeff Bagshaw Information & Education Specialist at [email protected] or 808-264-7891 to discuss future opportunities. When contacting us about volunteer interest, please provide the following:

  • Your primary area of interest (e.g., plants, animals, restoration activities, or native species monitoring)
  • Any special skills you can offer or any special needs you may have
  • Your availability (e.g., weekday or weekend, general time commitment).

For schools or other groups looking for an educational site visit, please fill out the Request a Presentation or Service Trip form on our website. Hawaiʻi public schools can also find DOFAW on the ClimbHI directory for classroom presentations.


DOFAW uses the iVolunteer system to post volunteer opportunities. You can find available opportunities for Maui Nui, sign your release waivers, and more right from iVolunteer. You can also register to be notified for future volunteer events. The button below will launch the Maui Nui section of iVolunteer

DOFAW has many partners that also offer volunteer opportunities. In Maui County, three watershed partnerships work closely with DOFAW: find out more at MauiWatershed.org. You might consider volunteering with the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project, the Maui Nui Seabird Recovery Project, and the Maui Nui Marine Resource Council can help you find many ways to volunteer on land to help ocean resources.
