Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
Skyline Eco-Adventures, Hawaii’s leading commercial zipline company and operator of the first zipline course in the United States, hosted its fourth-annual “Zip for the Trees” community event and fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014, at its Haleakala, Maui course.
The 4th annual event was in support of Maui Children’s charities along with native reforestation on Skyline’s Haleakala, Maui zipline course. Funds were raised by selling zipline tours that had guests zipping through towering eucalyptus trees on three exhilarating ziplines at Skyline’s original course on the slopes of Haleakala, including Maui’s only pendulum zipline reaching speeds of more than 45 miles per hour. All proceeds from each tour benefit three local charities: The Children’s Justice Center, the Hui Malama Learning Center, and Maui Youth and Family Services.
Participants also enjoyed live music, prizes and giveaways, horseback rides, food for purchase, and more. Skyline employees and volunteers planted over 300 native trees and removed invasive species in a large-scale effort to restore the native forest land.
Last year, the event raised $3,000 from nearly 100 discounted zipline tours for Hawaii charities and organizations, and more than 60 volunteers worked to restore nearly 1 acre of native forest.

Skyline’s Haleakala course is located 2.5 miles up Crater Road in Kula on the way to Haleakala National Park. “Zip for the Trees” is part of Skyline’s extensive ongoing community and environmental efforts.
