In 2016, we started offering field trips to  Puʻu Waʻawaʻa (PWW), a site managed by the Division of Forestry and Wildlife and part of the  Hawaii Experimental Tropical Forest. This environment is a dryland ecosystem still in the beginning phases of restoration efforts. Overall management goals at PWW are to protect the older native forest kīpukas and to restore degraded ecosystems via native species out-plantings. Teaching Change is proud to have a legacy project of trail building at the PWW Oweowe enclosure, which will greatly facilitate watering of recently out-planted natives. Conservation and restoration efforts at PWW are already showing great success, and Teaching Change is proud to be part of its fabric.
