Skyline Eco-Adventures to Hold Charity EventSeptember 15, 2015, 7:22 AM HST · Updated September 15, 9:11 AM 0 Comments
Skyline Eco-Adventures will hold its 5th Annual “Zip 4 the Trees” community event and fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015, at its Skyline Haleakalā Maui course.
The 5th annual event is in support of three children’s charities on Maui and native reforestation on Skyline’s Haleakalā Maui zipline course.
Funds are raised by selling $40 zipline tours that allow guests to fly through towering eucalyptus trees on three ziplines at Skyline’s original course on the slopes of Haleakalā, including Maui’s only pendulum zipline reaching speeds of more than 45 miles per hour.
All proceeds from the event will benefit three local charities: The Children’s Justice Center, the Hui Malama Learning Center, and Maui Youth and Family Services.
Participants will also hear live music by Hawaiian musician Paula Fuga and the Hawaiian ‘ukulele rock band Kenekoa.
The event will include prizes and giveaways, horseback rides, food for purchase and more.
Pacific Media Group will be on-site with a radio remote with Mackie Mac and Da Jam 98.3.
Last year’s event raised over $7,500 for Maui children’s charities and more than 60 volunteers worked to restore nearly one acre of native forest. Skyline employees and volunteers have planted over 3,000 native trees since 2002 and removed invasive species in a large-scale effort to restore the native forest.
“Zip 4 the Trees” is part of Skyline’s extensive ongoing community and environmental efforts. For more information about its conservation efforts, go online.

Skyline’s Haleakalā course is located 2.5 miles up Crater Road on the way to Haleakalā National Park.
