Paepae o He’eia relies heavily on a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer base to get much of the restoration and rehabilitation work completed. The work is physically rigorous but very rewarding. There are two ways to get involved as a volunteer at He’eia Fishpond and both require RSVP:

1) Saturday Community Workdays – These are large volunteer days on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of most months during the year.  RSVP’S ARE REQUIRED!!  The day begins at 8:30am and ends at 12pm with lunch provided by our staff.  We encourage individuals and large groups to sign up.  All ages are welcome but children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.  Tasks include moving rock and coral, filling buckets, hauling floating barges through the water, cutting/pulling out invasive mangrove, invasive limu removal, trash pickup, and reconstruction of the kuapā.    These workdays fill up early so look on our calendar to find a date that works for you and then contact us.  Please bring the following items to the workday:

  • Covered Shoes or Tabis (mandatory to participate)
  • Clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Sunscreen
  • Water Bottle
  • Optional: Hat, Towel, Change of Clothes
