At the dawn of 2016,, Mālama Learning Center embarked on a partnership with Camp Pālehua (formerly known as Camp Timberlne), a day and residential environmental education facility on the slope above Kapolei. Under new ownership and management, Camp Pālehua strives to be a core component of a conservation hub that also includes the Wai'anae Mountains Watershed Partnership, and management of conservation lands by Gill 'Ewa Lands.
While Mālama Learning Center does not manage Camp Pālehua, we are an active educational partner. We bring groups of students, teachers, and community members up to Camp for one-to-multi-day learning experiences as well as facilitate hands-on adventures for groups coordinated directly by Camp staff.
Our home base is now located at Camp Pālehua and we have begun to transform the landscape with a native Hawaiian dryland forest demonstration garden as well as a food and medicine garden. We also created the Camp's hot compost system and look forward to harvesting the first batch soon!
Transformation and regeneration are two words aptly describing our contribution to Camp Pālehua and adjacent lands. More is coming . . . check back with us soon.
