(Hāʻena) – We are pleased to announce that Limahuli Garden & Preserve will reopen to residents and visitors on June 13, 2019. The Garden has been closed since last April’s flooding which had major impacts on our infrastructure and now all of our recovery efforts are complete. Our hours of operation remain the same, Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 to 4:00.
Limahuli Garden has initiated an advanced reservation program for those who would like to join our Garden tours. This program will allow our operation to effectively manage the number of vehicles and the associated impacts to the Garden and surrounding community. To make a reservation for our self-guided tour, visit our website at www.ntbg.org and click the Limahuli tab. To make a reservation for our guided tours, please call our Visitor Center at 808.826.1053.
Those who take the new north shore shuttle system to Limahuli Garden and full time residents (with a Hawaii driver’s license) will not require an advanced reservation for our self-guided tours. Shuttle riders who want to visit the Garden will require confirmation of their shuttle reservation or purchase to visit the Garden. For more information on visiting the Garden, please visit our website at www.ntbg.org. To find more information about shuttle operations, please visit their website at www.kauainsshuttle.com.
Adopting more sustainable tourism practices will allow the Garden to benefit the community, the areas natural & cultural resources and our visitors who come to engage in this very special place. Actively engaging in the solutions to take care of our places is a reciprocal responsibility all of us share equally. These measures are steps we will take to preserve our rural community, enhance our visitor experience and ensure our places are resilient and prosperous for generations to come. We are hopeful as we step forward towards a future of sustainable tourism, that we all work together to support and honor our communities, places and each other.
