Waikoloa Dry Forest Initiative will kick off its season with a volunteer day on Saturday, Oct. 31.

The Halloween Day volunteer project will begin at 8 a.m. near the Waikoloa Dry Forest Preserve sign at Quarry Road and Waikoloa Road. There, volunteers will meet and carpool into the preserve area. The day will be spent planting native vines, trees, and shrubs, as well as removing fountain grass in the planting area.

In addition to volunteer service efforts, gates will be open to those interested in visiting the site but who are unable to commit to a day of work in the area.

Those who plan on visiting, but not volunteering, are required to plan for their own transportation into the site. Four-wheel-drive vehicles are suggested.

The gate will be open from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.


Volunteers should come prepared in close-toed shoes and with protection from the sun and heat. A water bottle should also be brought. Volunteer organizers will provide additional water and treats at the end of the work day.
