PROTECT
POLOLU

Pololū is sacred.  This valley is rich with the history of our ancestors. This means our 'ohana is this wahi pana. Much of this area has remained untouched until recently due to the rising amount of visitors. We are here to Protect Pololū and the mo'olelo of our ancestors for our keiki so they may know who they are and where they come from. 

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO VISIT POLOLU:

-Stay off the sand dunes. This area is the resting place of our ancestors.

-Be respectful to stewards, ʻāina and others.

-Pololū has no restrooms.

-Parking is very limited.

-No camping

-No drones

-No professional photography or filming without permits

-There is only one road to get in and out.

-There have been several rescues in the valley.

-The ocean current is unpredictable and the stream can overflow and block access to trail swiftly and unexpectedly.

-The trails are dangerous and not meant for visitors who do not know this area well.

Projects to Fund

The Pololū Stewardship program is a collaborative project that started in August 2021 with the hiring of four full-time stewards. We are blessed to have stewards who know and love this wahi pana. There has been an increase of traffic and rescues in this area because visitors do not know the history and significance of this valley to the people of this place. We are grateful to have stewards that can tell them that mo'olelo. Please support and donate by clicking below.
