Welcome Back! Our volunteer program is back open and we look forward to having you in Kokee with us. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Volunteers must be able to provide their own transportation to and from worksites. 


The Kōkeʻe Resource Conservation Program does primarily alien species control work in the forests of Kaua‘i. The program provides a framework for volunteers to be involved in preserving the spectacular natural resources of the area. Periodically KRCP also does collecting and propagation of native plants, outplanting of native plants, trail maintenance, fence maintenance and maintenance of tea plants located in Kōkeʻe.

Work days are available Monday-Thursday between 7 am-5 pm. We can schedule a work project for a half day, 8 am-12 pm, or full day, 8 am - 4 pm.
