Restoration at the Waikoloa Dry Forest Preserve  involves the integration of skills, ideas and kōkua (assistance) of many individuals and agencies throughout our communities. We invite you to visit, tour and help us in our ambitous endeavor to protect and restore our beautiful lowland dry forest!


We offer guided tours several times per month, especially during peak wiliwili flowering season (August-October). Tours are guided by knowledgeable staff and Board members who will take you through the preserve to visit ancient wiliwili trees, learn about our restoration efforts and get to know some of the dryland forest’s native plants in our nursery. Check our calendar for upcoming tours or contact us to arrange a private tour.


We love volunteers! Volunteering in the Waikoloa Dry Forest can be both challenging and inspiring. With the help of many volunteers we have already made significant progress in reforesting many acres within the preserve. Volunteer Saturdays are hosted October through June, check our calendar for upcoming events.

Group Visits

We are happy to accommodate service groups of all sizes at the preserve. We also offer guided tours, educational lessons and workshops for groups in exchange for volunteer service or monetary donation. Please contact us if you’d like to plan a visit for your family, kids group, coworkers or community group.
