Community Service Project at Na Pohaku o Hauwahine Sat. Nov. 20th

Please join with us on Saturday November 20th 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 plant invasives 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, plenty 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
