VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
FRIENDS OF HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK

Monthly One-Day Nursery Service Events

The Friends of Haleakala National Park are offering a new one-day service activity at the park’s plant nursery in the Haleakala summit district on the first Tuesday of each month. 

Volunteers will help park horticulturist Michelle Osgood with jobs involving caring for the rare, endemic plants being propagated, such as transplanting, weeding, cleaning and preparing seeds for storage or planting, and some pot washing.  The park recycles pots which have to be carefully cleaned to prevent the spread of plant diseases. There may sometimes be some out planting, but most of the service work is done inside, and participants can drive up to the location of the work.

Those interested should call Mary at 572-1584 for a reservation and to arrange a carpool which will be from Pukalani up to the park at 8:00 am. 

Participants should bring water, lunch and snacks, and their own gloves if desired. The park will provide other tools. Wear sturdy shoes, and in case of out planting work, bring a hat and sunscreen.

The NPS will no longer allow service trips to exit Kaupo Gap... we are working to change that. 

Kipahulu trips are car camping.  
Holua trips are moderately difficult back-packing trips.
Kapalaoa trips are difficult back-packing trips. 
Paliku trips are strenuous back-packing trips 

Please consider your experience, ability and physical condition when choosing a trip.
