LATEST NEWS | 2017 Kupu Environmental Fair
 
Kupu recently celebrated distinguished conservation leaders at its 8th Annual Kupu Environmental Fair. Read more about this year's awardees and the fair, which welcomed 250 attendees, including supporters and Kupu's 2017 HYCC Summer and Community program participants, and this year's Hawaii Youth Sustainability Challenge mini-grant recipients from across the state. 

IN THE FIELD | HYCC Summer


More than 100 youth from across the state gathered at Camp Palehua on O'ahu to kick off Kupu's HYCC Summer program. For most, the week-long training camp was an exciting start to the next six weeks ahead, while others claimed it was the "best days of their lives" so far. Get a glimpse into this year's HYCC Summer Training Camp.     Read more

COMMUNITY | Service Project


Last month, 18 Kupu interns gathered in on the slopes of Haleakala on Maui for a week-long service project. According to one of the interns, the trip was anything short of an adventure full of discovery, lasting bonds, accomplishment (after clearing 80 acres of invasive species) and experiences to last a lifetime.       Read more
 

SPOTLIGHT | Waital Exchange 

For the first time, organizations from the Lake Tahoe Basin and other Pacific Islands gathered for the Blue Waters Exchange Program in California. For two weeks, Kupu and five of its program alumni engaged in outdoor and cultural learning activities at Yosemite National Park, Sierra National Forest and Monterey Bay. They also had an opportunity to share their personal experiences and 'ike (knowledge) about conservation in their communities. Read more
