We are happy to announce the reopening of our volunteer program for the 2021 fall out planting season. The season starts the first week of September to the end of November. We look forward to working with you to restore the native forest of Mauna Kea. Sign up and volunteer to help plant native trees at our restoration sites on Mauna Kea.

We have over 42, 000 native tress seedlings for this year’s Forest Restoration calendar. Our crew have put in the ground over 18,000 in the spring. We still have over 23,000 more native seedlings of Koa, Māmane, and `Ili`ahi to plant this fall. These young natives are looking great in the nursery and getting ready to meet you on the Mauna.NATIVE SEEDLINGS
