Join us on Saturday Apr. 13, 2013 at Ulupo Heiau to malama this wahi pana (sacred place). At 8:30 am we will begin our Oli Kahea and have an orientation to this mapele heiau. We will be cutting back the hau, weeding in the auwai, cutting weeds in the marsh and preparing lo’i for planting. Bring a cutting or digging tool, water bottles, bug spray and a snack. Wear shorts or long pants, gloves, hat and use sun screen. No slippers or open toed shoes! Wear tabis or footwear when working in the loi and shoes in the land areas. We will be pau by 12:00 pm, perhaps tired, wet and dirty but you will be thinking throughout the week on what you have done to malama this sacred place. Call 263-8008 or email rick_scudder @ yahoo.com for more information or to let us know if you are bringing a group of volunteers.

Help restore the Lo'i kale at Ulupo Heiau.
