Saturday, October 14, 2017—E aloha ʻāina kākou! Join us for our first Aloha ʻĀina Saturday of the year in the Kohala watershed! Learn about The Kohala Center’s ʻāina-based work and education initiatives including the Kohala Watershed Partnership and Ke Kumu ʻĀina. Take part in ecological restoration and climate change mitigation through outplanting native plant species in targeted watershed areas.
Meet at The Kohala Center’s offices (65-1291A Kawaihae Rd.) at 9 a.m. and bring along a water bottle and sack lunch. Boots or sturdy shoes are required and rain gear is highly recommended. Be prepared for any kind of weather: hot or cold, sunny or cloudy, windy or calm, wet or dry…knowing Kohala, probably all of the above! We provide tools, gloves, and cold drinking water. We’ll work, hike, explore, picnic, and then work a bit more, returning to Waimea by 1 p.m.
