LIMAHULI GARDEN AND PRESERVE:
This beautiful 1,000-acre preserve on the north shore of Kaua‘i aims to perpetuate traditional knowledge of native plant conservation and habitat restoration. Take a walk through its Plantation Era garden and along Limahuli Stream, one of the last pristine waterways left in the islands. When you get to work, you will learn about Native Hawaiian species and ecosystems, and be immersed in Hawaiian culture.
Volunteer Tip: Inquire with the National Tropical Botanical Garden about its “Vacation and Volunteer” option. This way, you’ll be placed in the area that you’re most excited about, from nurturing plants in the nursery to assisting with arts and crafts. ntbg.org/donate/volunteer.php
