    Who would have thought some of my favorite plants were invasive to Hawaii? I learned so much on this hike and restoration and I really felt like I was making a difference in preserving the natural forest of this beautiful island! The hosts were very knowledgable and made us feel more than welcome. The views above Waikiki are incredible. I can almost guarantee this is a hike you won’t find in the travel books so definitely worth checking out.

  5. Simply an Amazing Hike and Restoration Project

    My experience was absolutely awesome! The group travel2change really did an awesome job coordinating this event from start to finish. I also learned so many unknown things about the forest plant life here in Hawaii. I also loved the hike during the entire evolution because the Stefan and Dusty gave a great brief along our journey. I really suggest that you all try this hike while visiting Hawaii.
