Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project participates in various environmental education and outreach events throughout the year. During these events, we focus on educating people about native forest birds, our research, conservation work, and partner projects. Events include annual fairs, fundraisers, charity events, and presentations. Fundraisers help support the work of recovering native forest birds and their habitat.
