Kona Outdoor Circle (KOC) is a branch of the statewide organization known as The Outdoor Circle (TOC), the first environmental non-profit organization in the state. TOC was formed by a group of concerned citizens nearly 100 years ago with the mission to “Keep Hawai’i Clean, Green, and Beautiful” by preserving, protecting and enhancing our environment for future generations. There are 12 branches of the organization on islands throughout the state. On Hawai’i Island there are three branches: Kona, Waikoloa Village and Waimea.
Kona Outdoor Circle is a community based volunteer organization whose mission is to “Keep Kona Clean, Green and Beautiful”. Located in the seaside town of Kailua Kona on the Island of Hawai`i, KOC was established in 1948 as an affiliate of The Outdoor Circle. For over 50 years KOC has been spearheading projects to preserve and beautify Kona.
