Ola Nā Kini Site Huaka'i Request Form
Aloha and mahalo for your interest in our Ola Nā Kini (ONK) program coordinated by Mālama Learning Center! ONK strives to regenerate native and edible forests in the southern Wai'anae Mountains through active community engagement and education. This program is an opportunity for everyone to learn from the 'āina through hands-on, place-based education that has relevant applications through participation in site restoration projects in Leeward O'ahu. We feel it's our kuleana to collectively care for Hawai'i's natural and cultural resources for future generations.

We can host workdays at a variety of different sites spanning mauka to makai located in Leeward O'ahu depending on what kind of learning experience you're looking to have. Those sites include:
-Pālehua (mauka site in southern Wai'anae mountains)
-Nānākuli Muliwai @ Zablan's beach park (makai site)
-Piliokahe Coastline (Tracks Beach Park) (makai site)
-Kapolei High School Plant Nursery
-Pālehua Mauka Native Plant Nursery
*Workdays will generally run from 9am-12pm (Mon-Fri) and includes an educational service activity. Saturdays are possible as well if available.

We limit our site restoration workdays to 45 people maximum and plant nursery workdays to 25 people maximum for site safety reasons. There's a site fee of $6.25/student (for school groups). If you're a non-school group, there's a site fee of $7.00/person. (Our minimum fee for any group is $150.) This fee helps us to partially cover the cost of supplies, plants, and staff time not subsidized by grants.

Please fill out this form to request a workday at one of our Ola Nā Kini sites. This information will help us coordinate a productive and engaging visit for each group. We will try our best to accommodate site requests as we can.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email info@malamalearningcenter.org.
