Here are some upcoming events sponsored by the Seirra Club.
See more at Maui Hiking.

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 Jackie
at 579-9516 well in advance and make an appointment with her for when
you can sign it. Then go to EMI’s Pa’ia office at 497 Baldwin Avenue
to sign the waiver. Please be considerate of Jackie’s 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.
