Environmental Education Programs
For the past four decades, MGF has pioneered environmental education programs that help students understand and appreciate the history and cultural significance of Kamananui Valley. Utilizing experiential and place based learning our goal is to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
We offer a variety of education programming (K-12) utilizing Kamananui Valley as our outdoor classroom. Student drop off for all environmental programs will be at Moanalua Valley Neighborhood Park. To learn more or book a reservation with us please contact us at:
Field Experiences are single day, 2-3 hour opportunities for students to come out to Kamananui Valley as a class to get hands-on experience in the last undeveloped region of Moanalua. We offer a variety of programming, including experiences in environmental science, plant identification, cultural history, and mālama `āina.
All programs are available for free for O`ahu students and scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. If we are unable to accommodate your first choice of program or scheduling for any reason, we are happy to coordinate with you.
FREE to Students in Grades K-12
