Free ecotours for kamaaina offered 

HeleWai Eco Tours, in partnership with the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve, launched a monthly community initiative aimed to educate, inspire, and perpetuate conservation efforts across the island, according to a news release.

Once a month on every third Saturday, beginning this Saturday, HeleWai Eco Tours will offer their premium ecotour completely free of charge to Hawaii residents, which includes a guided hike through the Honolua Ridgeline, private conservation lands that house a thriving native ecosystem, and a portion of the  Pu’u Kukui preserve and watershed. 

Following the hike, participants will be asked to help bolster the native forest by pulling out invasive species and plant native plants, according to a news release.

  Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve is the largest private nature preserve in Hawaii, responsible for taking care of a watershed extending across more than 9,000 acres Maui’s west side. 

 Space is limited and registration is required. All parties must present valid Hawaii identification. Tours are open to residents of all ages.
