The Adopt-a-Forest program (AAF) is coordinated by the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife, and partners with schools of Hawaiʻi. Participating students help with habitat management efforts at Pahole Natural Area Reserve (NAR). Learn more about AAF and the NAR.
Classes from elementary and intermediate schools have participated in growing and out planting native forest plants, and high schools have participated in a native species data monitoring program, including forest sampling, insect and rodent tracking, endangered snail management, weeding, and native out-plantings. High school students camp overnight at Peacock Flats and are in the field to collect important data on native flora and fauna species. In this program students are able to hike within the forests of the natural area reserve system to implement resource management techniques and conservation methods.
