Community Outreach


Waimea Nature Camp brings together kids from our community to explore the mountains, forests, streams and oceans of our island. Through these experiences, we are molding responsible stewards of these resources for the future.

People are an integral part of the watersheds of Kohala Mountain, and KWPʻs goal is to engage the community in mālama ʻāina, caring for the land, our source of water and life.

Our Volunteer Program engages children and adults in hands-on conservation activities, including native tree planting, invasive plant removal, building trails and collecting native seeds. See our Volunteer page for a calendar of events and upcoming work days, and an opportunity to sign up for our email contact list.

Every summer and during other school holidays, KWP organizes Waimea Nature Camp, a day camp program focussed on connecting children to nature through play, science, crafts and field trips to natural areas on our island. Read more about it here.
KWP has grown into a resource for our community on topics of environmental conservation, invasive species management, reforestation, environmental education and watershed management. We have given presentations to clubs, civic groups, community associations, and taken our elected officials and citizens on field trips to get a first-hand look at the work that we do. Contact the KWP coordinator if you would like to schedule a presentation or field trip.
