Learn firsthand why the uplands and the wai or water were important for the people who lived in the Ahupua‘a of Kona.  Come and see the lush valley of Makiki and help remove invasive species that threaten the indigenous plants and watershed.


The Hawai’i Spotlight program provides opportunities for students to explore different parts of the island and learn about the Hawaiian culture and the community we live in. These events are scheduled once per month.


Hawai‘i Nature Center has over 35 years of experience educating Hawaii’s youth about our diverse ecosystems on O‘ahu and Maui.  They foster awareness, appreciation, and understanding of Hawaii’s environment. The center also encourages wise stewardship of the Hawaiian Islands by educating children with an interactive and immersive approach. 


Participants should bring water, sunscreen, a hat, and bug spray.  Closed-toe shoes are required and long pants are highly recommended.  Wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, muddy, and wet.  Bring an extra pair of clothes and shoes to change into afterwards.
