Background

Standing 400 feet above the Kīlauea Iki crater down to the depths of a 550 year old lava tube, students will begin to explore and understand the ecosystem of Hawaii's natural rainforest. Through this field trip, students will understand how these plants and animals made their way over vast oceans, and how they began to adapt to elements and terrain presented to them upon arrival. The students will begin to gain a much deeper sense of appreciation for the environment in which they live.
