Volunteer with the Kīlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge

An active volunteer group at Kīlauea Point contributes approximately 8,000 hours of service to the refuge annually. The Kīlauea Point Volunteer Program provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to give back to Kauaʻi. Volunteers play an integral role in the daily operation of the Refuge and are readily available to answer questions and provide natural and cultural history information. The personal interaction between volunteers and the visiting public provides an outstanding educational experience. Volunteers also assist with the preservation of native plant species, maintaining facilities, conducting biological surveys, leading environmental education, and assisting on office and organizational projects.

Short-term volunteer roles are available assisting with habitat maintenance, planting, weeding and other important work to care for our Refuge.  We welcome your support and passion!
