The 10-week Hawaii Program will be based out of the islands of Hawaii and Kauai. For six weeks we will explore and study the Big Island of Hawaii. We will base out of two locations: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and the areas surrounding Waimea, including the Kohala Forest Reserve and Puako Reef on the north Kona coast. The next two weeks will transition to Kauai where we will examine two unique areas: the Grand Canyon of Waimea and the North Shore, where we will work with local groups of the Waipa Foundation and Limahuli Garden and Preserve. Following our time on Kauai we will return to the Waimea on the Big Island to complete the course.
This is an island program. While we will work with numerous local groups, we will spend the majority of our time living and working together. Up to twenty students will participate in the program.
