Mission Statement

E mlama a e ho'omau i na waiwai kanaka, mo'omeheu, a kulohelohe o Waimea no kela hanauna, Keia hanauna ma o ka ho'ona'auao a me ka ho'okahu 'ana. Preserve and perpetuate the human, cultural and natural resources of Waimea for generations through education and stewardship.


Waimea Valley is a living pu'uhonua (sanctuary) for and by kanaka (Hawaiian People). We strive to celebrate and share a vibrant and living Hawaiian culture with the world.

The land managed by our organization is nearly 1,900 acres. We have a beautiful botanical garden spanning about 300 acres from our waterfall to the highway. The garden contains over 5,500 species of plants from all over the world including many rare collections and some of Hawaii's most rare and endangered species. It's not just endangered plants here, we also protect endangered birds and fish in this amazing ecosystem. The back 1,500 or so acres is set up as conservation land where we are actively protecting and rebuilding the native forest habitat.

We welcome you to experience Waimea Valley and be a part of the volunteer team that works to protect this sacred place. Let's honor and perpetuate Hawai`i’s past, be active stewards of our present and plan for a prosperous and healthy future.

I had a great time at the event. I did not expect the organization's appreciation for local culture and their willingness to share knowledge with the volunteers.
