Help Restore Honokowai Valley

Beyond the resorts and the sugarcane fields, deep in the heart of Maui, there is a past unknown to us, yet so familiar. In Honokowai Valley, on Maui’s West Side, an estimated 600 Hawaiian families once lived and worked in a thriving village. Today, more than 100 years later, what they left behind tells a story of self-sufficiency and harmony with the natural environment.

It’s a story that continues to unfold through the efforts of volunteers like you—come help Maui Cultural Lands weed out invasive species, plant and care for native flora, and uncover stones that were once the foundation for Hawaiian homes and taro patches.

Project Malama Honokowai meets every Saturday at Puʻukoliʻi Train Station (Kaʻanapali) at 9:00am (normally emerging from the valley by 3:30-4:00pm). Dress to get dirty. Wear closed-toe shoes. Bring lunch and water, and gloves if you have them.

Contact to confirm the date and time.
