Outreach & Education
We are known for our innovative educational and outreach efforts. In addition to participating in community events throughout the islands, our signature events include our annual conservation poster and curriculum provided free to every public, private and language immersion school in the state; an annual Manu O Kū Festival, now in it’s eighth year reaching hundreds of families and keiki from around urban Honolulu and O‘ahu with fun opportunities to learn about Hawaii’s native wildlife through the Manu O Ku, (White tern) as our local ambassador; and starting in 2023, partnering with the Hawai‘i Wildlife Center to present the Hawai’i Island Festival of Birds.
“CCH excels at educating the public about the need to protect the Hawaiian environment. Everyone who treasures Hawai‘i’s unique wildlife, flora, and habitats owes CCH a debt of gratitude for its work.”
