Please volunteer with us on Saturday Feb. 15, 2014 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm to help restore Na Pohaku o Hauwahine located along Kapa’a Quarry Rd. by 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 and muck. We will be primarily concerned with weeding and cleaning up areas and possibly do some new native plantings. Wear work clothes, shoes, (no slippers!) bring your gloves, weeding or cutting tool, water and snack.
