CANCELED: Volunteer at He‘eia State Park Estuary

Join the Shidler Alumni Association board for its next volunteer opportunity.

Saturday, March 21
9 a.m.-noon (please arrive at 8:45 a.m. to sign in)
He‘eia State Park in Kāne‘ohe

Since spring 2015, Hui ‘o Ko‘olaupoko has been working at the mouth of the He‘eia Stream to clear invasive mangrove and other non-native plants in an effort to restore stream flow, replant native plants and improve habitat for native aquatic species and shorebirds. The majority of invasive species removal was completed in under a year and the replanting of native species began in February 2016.

At this volunteer event, you will be involved in clearing invasive plant species from the stream and shoreline are using small hand tools and hand pulling small weed as we work to open and create areas to outplant native species. The service event will conclude with a short walk to the private He‘eia Fish Pond to learn about its historical significance and how efforts to restore the fish pond are directly related to the HOK project and other projects in the ahupua‘a.
