Mission Statement

The Discovery Forest is designed to represent natural systems, creating a scene of Hawai'i before the arrival of humans and demonstrating culturally significant plant and tree species that once grew near traditional shoreline villages of O'ahu. This replication of coastal ecosystems is providing a habitat for Hawaiian plants, birds, and invertebrates, while reconnecting urban visitors with the Hawai'ian forest.The project is benefiting an estimated 700,000 visitors per year to the zoo.


We are a forest education and conservation program that allows community members to get a hands on experience working with native and Polynesian introduced plants on our site. Activities include native/Polynesian introduced forest education, planting, weeding and harvesting. Please email LMDuling@hawaii.edu for more details for to RSVP. Mahalo!
