  Recreation and Education Opportunities

Environmental Education
The refuge provides an environmental education program that reaches children and adults. School groups can schedule refuge tours, and resource materials are available upon request. Contact the refuge office for a "Kaua'i National Wildlife Refuge Complex Watchable Wildlife" brochure.

The refuge visitor center features interpretive displays and dioramas about native Hawaiian habitats and wildlife. It also includes a bookstore run by the Kilauea Point Natural History Association. The bookstore carries an excellent selection of natural history books and other items.

Wildlife Observation
Kilauea Point Refuge, with its dramatic backdrop of steep cliffs plunging to the ocean, is one of the best places on the main Hawaiian islands to view seabirds. During the nesting season, visitors can even see birds courting and feeding chicks.
