Love the mountains and forests? Want to learn more about our native plants and animals while also helping to protect them? Come join us on a volunteer stewardship trip, led by trained WMMWP crew members! We conduct two separate trips, one to the Waihee Ridge Trail, and the other to the Maunalei Arboretum.
We love bringing students, hula halau, sports teams, offices and other community groups out into the field. If you have a group you would like come out with us, please contact us.
WMMWP Stewardship Trips
Come join WMMWP on a volunteer stewardship trip to control highly invasive strawberry guava on the Waihee Ridge Trail! This area is at the front lines in the fight against strawberry guava, so success on this battle ground is key to protecting the mountain, native forests, and watersheds.
Sign up to be on our volunteer mailing list to be notified about our next public stewardship hike.
Or, to learn more about the volunteer opportunities we provide, kindly contact us. Our native forests thank you for getting involved!
Kupu Hawaii Internships
Every year, we sponsor an AmeriCorps intern under the Kupu Hawaii HYCC Extended Internship Program. This is a year-round position, from October 2017 to August 2018, to gain experience and learn first-hand about natural resource conservation. A monthly living allowance of $1,300 is given, and after completion of the program, a $5,775 educational awards is given towards the pursuit of higher education.
The application window is currently closed, but stay tuned for the next round to open later this year. If you are interested or know someone who is, apply online through Kupu's application form, or contact us for more information.
