 Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge is located in Maui, and is a great place for a self-guided visit during your time on the island. 

The refuge stretches over 285 hectares (704 acres) and is home to over 30 different species of birds. There is a large modern visitor center which has educational exhibits about the natural habitat of the marshland and the important role it plays in the local ecosystem. The refuge is covered with wooden boardwalk trails so that you can explore different areas of the marshes. There are also shaded structures along the pathways with additional information boards, where you can rest and take a moment to look at the birds. You can bring binoculars and a camera to snap shots of the local wildlife. 

The refuge was designed with accessibility in mind, as the wooden board pathways can be navigated independently in a wheelchair. There is also an accessible bathroom in the visitor center.
