Become part of Hawaii’s conservation story

Become a docent volunteer and guide school tours through the botanical gardens that surround ancient Kūkaʻōʻō Heiau and the historic Kūaliʻi home. If you enjoy the outdoors, learning more about Hawaiʻi, and interacting with people of all ages, then this will be a fun and rewarding experience for you.

Thank you for your interest in promoting the stewardship of Hawai'i's natural and cultural heritage. MHC’s six-week docent training course will prepare you for your journey with topics including Hawaiian history, Mānoa Valley’s transition over time, native and Polynesian-introduced plants, and traditional Hawaiian cultural practices. Year-round enrichment excursions and workshops will keep life-long learning at your fingertips. In addition, docents receive special benefits such as complimentary tours for family and friends and annual appreciation parties. We will contact you to set up an interview!
