Join Ahahui Malama I ka Lokahi on (to be determined)  from 8:30am – 12:30 pm for a Kawainui Wetlands Insect and Aquatic Search in the streams and ponds of the Kailua Ahupua’a.  This would be a good outing for family members young and old and will be led by Dr. Steven L. Montgomery. Bring your insect collecting nets, fish scoop nets, a bucket and quart size zip lock bags.  We will first meet at Ulupo Heiau sampling the aquatic life in the springs and pond there.  We then car pool to upper Maunawili stream, then to the Na Pohaku pond and finally to the Kawainui estuary at Kaha Park.  Wear tabis or wading boots to get into the water, your collecting equipment, water bottle and a snack.  Respond to this at  email @ ahahui.net and/or call Ahahui at 263-8008 to make your reservations.
