The Waikōloa Dry Forest is an inspiring place where ancient wiliwili trees persist in some of the roughest terrain in Hawai‘i. Here, you can learn about the diverse forest that once covered the driest regions of our islands and find out how you can have a positive impact on the future of the forest.

Inspiring the Next Generation

Our Future Foresters program is dedicated to inspiring our keiki to be lifelong learners and stewards of the land. Through our place based curriculum we hope to strengthen their connections to each other, to the forest and to our ‘āina.



The best way to learn about the lowland dry forest is to experience it! Visit the preserve for a guided tour or a day of service for an in-depth look at what makes Hawaii’s lowland dry forests so unique and worth conserving.


The Waikōloa Dry Forest Initiative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit supported by our community. There are many ways to contribute to our mission to protect, promote, and restore native Hawaiian dry forest and we’d love to have you on our team. Please, join us!
