Please join with us on Saturday Aug. 18th from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm to malama Na Pohaku o Hauwahine located along Kapa’a Quarry Rd. in Kawainui Marsh, Kailua. Our restoration efforts at this site are to remove alien plants and replant with endemic natives. We are also maintaining a native wetland bird habitat in the marsh where we remove alien weeds. We will be primarily concerned with weeding in areas planted with natives and watering to keep the young plants alive and growing and possibly do some new plantings. Wear work clothes, shoes, (no slippers!) bring your gloves, weeding or cutting tool, water and snack. Persons with chainsaws welcome! Contact Kaimi Scudder at 263-8008 or email: email @ ahahui.net if you’re coming and for more information. Also, see Ahahui Malama I ka Lokahi’s website at: http://www.ahahui.net

    I would love to be involved tomorrow but I have a big toenail problem. At Turtle Bay we have a similar marsh ecosystem with waterbirds and are awaiting the Resort’s Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on Aug23rd. The Resort was supposed to implement a restoration program developed by US FWS in the 1980. Please go to http://www.facebook.com/TurtleBayEndangeredSpecies
    and see what is happening. Mahalo.
