Be a hike leader!  We’ll pay for your first aid course and train you!  You can put it on your resume.   And we’ll write you a recommendation! MAUI GROUP HIKES AND ACTIVITIES

Please be prepared for outings. Bring lunch, water, rain gear, sunscreen and appropriate footwear. Hiking boots are recommended for longer hikes. A donation of $5 ($3 for Sierra Club members) is requested of hikers over age 14. We always welcome more hike leaders. Contact Lucienne deNaie at laluz@maui.net.

East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI) allows us to hike across their beautiful land so long as each hiker has a waiver. An EMI WAIVER IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED FOR EMI HIKES (LISTED BELOW). One waiver covers all EMI hikes for this quarter. Call in your waiver request to Candyce at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment for when you can sign it.  . Then go to EMI’s Pa’ia office at 497 Baldwin Avenue to sign the waiver.  You will need to call to make sure someone will be there. Waivers CANNOT be mailed, faxed or emailed. Sierra club does not make the rules. EMI does. Please be considerate of EMI staff time and pick up waiver 5 days in advance whenever possible. THE WAIVER MUST BE BROUGHT ON THE HIKE AND SHOWN TO THE HIKE LEADER. Mahalo

Drop us an email and let us know your thoughts. Sierra Club members are invited to attend our monthly meetings.  To learn where and when the next meeting is and to add an agenda item you want to discuss.
