For tasks big and small, HILT is always looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers.  An essential component to the success of Hawaiian Islands Land Trust, volunteers help with restoration and conservation projects, land stewardship, assist with events, complete office tasks, and collaborate on special projects.

Ho‘omoe wai kahi ke kao‘o. Let all travel together like water flowing in one direction.
— ‘Ōlelo no‘eau

Get your hands dirty restoring native habitats, working in a Hawaiian mala‘ai (garden), or participating in beach clean-up projects.  If work gloves aren't your thing, no worries.  Be an advocate for land conservation by helping with fundraising events and community outreach projects.  Enjoy working in a busy office?  Join our team and help with mailings and special projects.

No effort is too small.  Your valuable experience and expertise can help us accomplish our core mission of "protecting the lands that sustain us."  We welcome you to be part of the ‘ohana!
