Limahuli Flood Relief Update – Double Your Impact Through June 22

NTBG's Limahuli Garden & Preserve suffered significant damage during the historic April flooding on Kauai. In our moment of need, NTBG supporters have moved mountains and funds raised have been instrumental in serving humanitarian needs and relief efforts in the Garden and north shore communities.

Limahuli Garden Now Open

Limahuli Garden has reopened following more than a year of flood recovery efforts and is accepting reservations for self-guided and guided tours. The garden closed in April 2018 after historic flooding closed access to the garden and damaged infrastructure, trails, and plant collections. The garden's hours of operation remain Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 to 4:00.
