Welcome Back! Our volunteer program is back open and we look forward to having you in Kokee with us. Due to COVID, we are accepting volunteers in small groups (less than 10). 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. 

For more information on how to volunteer, please email us a

The Kōkeʻe Resource Conservation Program (KRCP) engages the public to protect Kauai's biodiversity by invasive plant removal.  Service learning projects connect all ages to nature by working in Kauai's magnificent but fragile native forest.  Hawaii has 33% of all endangered species in the U.S. yet receives only 5% of federal funding allotted for endangered species protection.  KRCP leverages funding with volunteers from around the world.  Since 1998, KRCP has removed 13.1 million weeds from over 12,300 acres with the help of over 32,700 volunteers.

KRCP is a project of the non-profit Garden Island Resource Conservation & Development, Inc.
