Volunteer work to clear weeds from the natural spring.

About

This project began as a three year restoration & grant partnership between Kualoa Ranch and Hui o Ko'olaupoko . Although the grant period has ended, maintenance and continued outplanting of the project is critical to its success. The goals of the project include reducing sediment entering Hakipuu Stream and Kane'ohe Bay and increasing habitat for native aquatic species such as opae kala'ole and 'o'opu.

Volunteers will be involved in clearing invasive plant species from the semi-remote mauka spring and stream area using handsaws and hand pulling small weeds as well as planting native species and maintaining a small lo'i within the project.

Space for this workday is limited---PLEASE RSVP to reserve your spot and receive directions to the meeting location. RSVP to Kristen Nalani Mailheau 381-7202, volunteer@huihawaii.org . Let us know if you need to cancel.
