Community Service Project at Na Pohaku o Hauwahine, Sat. Feb. 21, 2015

Please volunteer with us on Saturday Feb. 21, 2015 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm to help restore 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 and cleaning up areas and possibly do some new native plantings. Wear work clothes, shoes, (no slippers!) bring your gloves, weeding or cutting tool, bug spray, water and snack. Contact Kaimi Scudder at 263-8008 or email: email@ahahui.net if you’re coming and for more information.
