If you are interested in protecting Hawaii's rarest plants, you are welcome to volunteer with PEPP. We must stress, though, that PEPP field activities can be highly specialized and physically demanding. PEPP volunteers should have a combination of botanical skills, attention to detail, maturity, weed control experience, fence building experience, and the ability to hike long distances with heavy gear in inclement weather over rough terrain. In cases of helicopter activities, volunteers must present current helicopter safety certification. Click here for the detailed PEPP Volunteer Position Description. If you feel that volunteering with PEPP doesn't seem to be the right fit for you, please contact us, because there could be PEPP activities to which you are well-suited. Additionally, PEPP graciously accepts donations. If volunteering with PEPP doesn't work out and you still have a strong desire to help Hawaii's native species or natural resources, please see our list of partners, many of whom welcome volunteers. If you have any questions regarding volunteering with or donating to PEPP, please contact Mike Long at the PEPP Statewide Office, or complete the form on the Contact Us page.
