Help TWS-HI at Waikamoi Nature Preserve in November and December!

The Wildlife Society Hawaii Chapter and The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii ( are coming together to provide an amazing opportunity for TWS Hawaii members.

We will have two events on Maui that will give our members an opportunity to learn more about TNC Maui, the native ecosystems and wildlife of Maui, and the management that is being done to protect it. Staff from The Nature Conservancy and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project will be at the events to share their knowledge.
November 19th, all day. We will be meeting in Upcountry Maui at 8am. After getting together gear and signing waivers, we will head up to TNC’s Waikamoi Preserve to do some invasive species control. Get ready to get your hands muddy. We’ll be doing some ginger control. 
December 3rd, all day. We will be meeting in Upcountry Maui at 8am. We will enter TNC’s Waikamoi Preserve and hike about 5 miles round trip. This is a steep hike- with both incline and decline- at high elevation. We will check out native and nonnative birds, plants, and more while on this hike and talk about some of the management initiatives that have occurred and are occurring in order to protect this special area.  
We suggest a $15 donation to support the event and more events like this in the future. 
Bring backpack with raingear, sun protection, layers, food, and water. Make sure you have sturdy footwear and wear long pants and sleeves. If you need to borrow anything please note in the form below. No off island gear will be allowed to prevent the spread of ROD. We will still be doing ROD prevention protocols on everything and want Maui gear to be clean and sprayed with 70% alcohol.
