“It is an enchantment, all of it, from the daydreaming to the digging.” – W.S. Merwin
In honor of W.S. Merwin’s dedication to his Maui home, and in keeping with the Conservancy’s mission for environmental advocacy and community education, we are welcoming teachers, students, and other members of the Maui community into the Merwin Palm Forest for private, curated learning experiences among the palms. Visits happen once or twice a month, and are scheduled in advance. Groups are kept small, intimate, and purposeful. We love to share the forest – its biodiversity, its stories and poetry – with students of all ages.
