EVENTS

Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project participates in various environmental education and outreach events throughout the year. During these events, we focus on educating people about native forest birds, our research, conservation work, and partner projects. Events include annual fairs, fundraisers, charity events, and presentations. Fundraisers help us continue our work recovering native forest birds and their habitat.

If you have an idea for a fundraiser or are interesting in inviting us to your event for either an outreach table or presentation, please email us at info@mauiforestbirds.org
