Pūpūkea-Paumalū Stewardship

The 1,144-acre Pūpūkea-Paumalū State Park Reserve was permanently protected from development in 2007. Since that monumental conservation agreement, the North Shore Community Land Trust has worked with the State of Hawaiʻi Parks Department to steward this unique resource and ensure that it is safely enjoyed by community members and visitors alike. Unless otherwise announced, monthly community work days occur on the fourth Saturday of each month from 9am-noon. Meet at the trail head adjacent to the Sunset Beach Elementary School parking lot prior to hiking into the reserve. More information regarding monthly community work days is listed below:
