Kaha Native Plant Garden

ORGANIZATION: Hui o Ko'olaupoko

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
Kaha Garden
Interpretative signs inform visitors of native plants and eco-friendly practices.

This project is a living example of how individual homeowners can help improve the local environment through the use of native vegetation and xeriscape gardens. The project replaced grass and invasive species along 150 yards of stream bank with native Hawaiian plants that can be used for soil stabilization, biofiltration, and water conservation. Visitors can walk the garden pathways to see how plantings might appear in their own backyards.

Volunteers will be involved in clearing invasive plant species from the gardens using small hand tools and hand pulling weeds as we work to open areas for re-introduction of native plants.

A few things to think about it you are going to volunteer...

  • Please wear closed-toe shoes and work clothes that you don't mind getting wet and dirty.
  • Bring a water bottle, snack, sun protection, and bug repellant. All tools & gloves will be provided.
  • Participants under age 16 must have adult supervision.
  • Participants under the age of 18, attending without their parent or legal guardian must bring the signed waiver.
  • Check our calendar on huihawaii.org for weekday opportunities

We offer a variety of regularly scheduled events each month and we can work with groups to arrange a private weekday service trip or educational visit. The best way see what events we have coming up and which would be the best fit for you is by visiting the Get Involved page on our website and signing up to receive our monthly newsletter.

Please RSVP
to 277-5611 or volunteer@huihawaii.org RSVPs are required for all participants due to the limited amount of volunteers we are able to host at the time. If your name is not on the RSVP list you cannot participate.

Feel free to call or e-mail if you have any additional questions. We look forward to working with you.

Mission Statement

Protecting ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.

Description

The mission of Hui o Koolaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.

Throughout the Koolaupoko moku (Makapuu to Kualoa) in Windward Oahu, land-based pollution is a leading threat to ocean health and resources. Hui o Koolaupoko (HOK) addresses these problems by being a leader in community-based watershed management; working with communities to improve water quality through ecosystem restoration, implementing low-impact retrofits (LIR), reducing non-point source pollution and developing education, outreach and volunteer programs for all ages.

Along with HOK’s restoration work in Koolaupoko, the organization provides services including technical consultation, restoration design, trainings and watershed restoration capacity building throughout Oahu and the State of Hawaii.
