Community Service Project at Na Pohaku o Hauwahine Sat. Nov. 19th

Please join with us on Saturday Nov. 19th 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 restoring a native wetland bird habitat in the marsh where we are opening up more water areas for the native wetland birds. 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

Learn about Kawainui and share your thoughs about how we should share Kawainui-Hamakua with the community and visitors.

On behalf of Ho‘olaulima ia Kawainui, Ahahui would like to thank you for your interest and support of our community outreach for Kawainui. For the past 6 years, Ho‘olaulima has been gathering background information on Kawainui-Hamakua for the development of an interpretive plan. Now that we have inventoried the natural and cultural resources, developed some interpretive themes (messages), identified the potential audience, and gathered information about various interpretive techniques, we believe it’s time to share this information with the community and seek their input on the interpretive opportunities. We are asking the community to share what they would like to see at Kawainui. The input we receive will allow us to move forward with the interpretive planning process and we hope to weave our interpretive recommendations into the Kawainui Master Plan update being conducted by DLNR.

You can download the flyer for our first round of six public outreach meetings in the Kailua community to be held from September to November. Please join us at one or more of these meetings. We would greatly appreciate your assistance in getting the word out to your friends and contacts. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and exploring ways to share the special resource of Kawainui-Hamakua with the community and visitors.

Natural and Cultural History Tour of Kawainui Marsh, Sat. Sept. 3rd

Ahahui Malama i ka Lokahi and the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club will begin their Fall Kawainui Marsh Educational Series, Saturday Sept. 3, 2011 with an introductory natural and cultural history tour of Kawainui Marsh. It will include possible interpretive sites around Kawainui Marsh.

Travel back in time when Kawainui Marsh and Kaelepulu Pond (Enchanted Lake) were ocean bays and the first Polynesians came to the shores of the ancient Kawainui Lagoon, constructed their heiau, (sacred temples), fishpond and taro terraces. Chuck “Doc” Burrows will lead participants on a driving/walking tour from Ulupo Heiau to Na Pohaku o Hauwahine and the Kawainui Estuary at Kawainui Park. He will explain how these sites were used in ancient and historic periods, and present plans by community volunteers, State and Federal agencies to restore the health of the natural and cultural ecosystems of the marsh and the Kailua Ahupua’a.

The tour will start at 8:30 am and be completed by 12:00 pm. A donation of $10 is requested. Contact Kaimi Scudder at 263-8008 or email “email@ahahui.net”  Please register early and receive more information.
