The Outdoor Circle was founded in 1912 and has been Hawaii’s leading organization for protecting the beauty of Hawai‘i ever since.
Early Outdoor Circle members are responsible for the planting of many of Oahu’s largest and most recognizable trees. However, the organization is best known for stopping the proliferation of billboards throughout the islands. Throughout the years The Outdoor Circle has expanded its scope to include green space protection, view plane preservation, tree advocacy and many other issues that impact the quality of life for our residents and the quality of the Hawai‘i experience for millions of visitors.
The Outdoor Circle is a grassroots membership organization that receives little funding other than the generous donations made by its donors. While it is sometimes cursed by those whose special interests are thwarted by our advocacy role in the community, The Outdoor Circle is widely known, accepted and appreciated throughout the islands as the “go to” organization for keeping Hawai‘i “clean, green and beautiful.”
