GET INVOLVED

Tours and workdays are great ways to learn and help your own ahupuaa thrive. For workdays, bring covered shoes, and prepare for mud, sun, bugs—and fun.

LEARN

Among the excellent cultural tours that have been offered by the Koolaupoko Hawaiian Civic Association are a glass bottom boat tour of Kaneohe Bay, and a walking tour of Moku o Loe (Coconut Island), both part of the ahupuaa of Heeia. Guests provide their own transportation and picnic lunch. koolaupokohcc.org
