Get an annual membership today; help support Hui o Laka and Kōke‘e Natural History Museum for as little as $25 per year. Just as in a family, a forest has many parts: little ones, big ones, strong ones, old ones that have seen many a storm. Every tree, every person plays a part. If you’re a young person, under 18 years of age, you can be the fragrant maile vine that adorns trees like a lei. No matter where in the world you are from, you can be a part of the forest ʻohana (family) that serves to maintain parks we all cherish.

Benefits and privileges of Hui o Laka include a 10% discount on purchases in Kōke‘e Museum Shop; the privilege of staying at the CCC Camp; and the ability to vote at the Annual Members Meeting (must be present at meeting to vote; meeting held the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.)

All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your receipt will be sent by mail.

Hui o Laka is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects people with the spirit of Kōke‘e by operating the Kōke‘e Natural History Museum as a visitor center for Waimea Canyon & Kōke‘e State Parks, and the historic Kōke‘e Civilian Conservation Corps Camp for volunteers and as a retreat for Hui o Laka members. Hui o Laka is supported by earned income at the Museum Shop and CCC Camp; contributions through membership and donations, and grants from private and public sources.


Cash contributions can be unrestricted or restricted to an existing program or project such as exhibits, festivals, or the CCC Camp. We’re thrilled when donations honor someone – for a birthday or special milestone – and are truly touched when gifts are made in a nature-lover's memory. These are acknowledged in our members newsletters.
