Volunteers on Vacation
“Volunteers on Vacation is a free program offered by Pacific Whale Foundation to help you easily find meaningful service projects to benefit Maui’s environment. Visitors and residents can spend a few hours giving back to the local community while enjoying access to ‘off the beaten trail’ places and learning about the history and natural ecosystem of the area.“
It’s the “off the beaten trail” part that makes this program a perfect fit for our adventurous guests!
Here are samples from the Foundation’s schedule: Every 1st and 3rd Saturday, 7:30am to 2:30 pm, work to preserve the ecosystem of Haleakala Nationals Park; every 2nd Saturday, 8:30am to 12:30pm, work on stream restoration in the West Maui mountains; every Saturday, 9am to 3:30pm, help to restore the beautiful Honokowai Valley and learn about Hawaiian history and culture in the bargain.
Visir their webiste for the Foundation’s full schedule of opportunities; then, find just the right fit. Then, book it! You’ll come back tired, maybe; mud on your shoes, almost certainly; but, also fulfilled knowing you’ve embraced and gifted this island; and, seen sights and met folks that most Maui visitors simply never will.
Maui Cycle Exploration
These events are sponsored by the Maui Bicycling League. From their site: “Rides take place at 8:45am on the second Saturday of every month unless otherwise stated. Many of our rides include a potluck or a stop at a local food spot to continue to grow our cycling community! Please bring a dish to share with the group for potluck rides or cash/credit card to purchase a meal.”
Upon arrival to Maui, go to https://www.mauibike.org/maui-cycle-exploration/ for the latest schedule updates.
Be sure to check on this event. It’s a super series. There are plenty of bike rental outfits, both near departure, and, destination. We’re pretty sure you didn’t get yours in the overhead!
