Get Involved


Volunteers contribute significantly to our work force and enable us to accomplish our mission: "working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people."

Pearl Harbor NWR is part of the O‘ahu NWR Complex. The management area consists of three units: the Waiawa Unit, Honouliuli Unit, and Kalaeloa Unit. All are closed to the general public in order to protect Hawai‘i’s endangered wildlife. Activities such as environmental education and volunteer projects, however, are permitted during the nonbreeding season of the ae‘o (Hawaiian stilt). At our Kalaeloa Unit of Pearl Harbor NWR, the opportunity exists to join community volunteers and partners to remove nonnative weeds and help stabilize and restore the native coastal vegetation community.
