Woah, February sure snuck up on us!
We have had our heads down working hard to keep the weeds at bay during this wonderful rainy winter weather. While the weeds have been growing strong, so have the native plants. Check out this two year old Ma'o Hau Hele (hibiscus brackenridgei), our State Flower, that is growing at the He'eia Estuary Project.
Did You know that each Ma'o Hau Hele flower blooms for just one day?
We are happy to announce that we will continue to host Third Saturday Workdays at the He'eia Estuary Restoration Project as we continue to keep the mangrove at bay, out-plant more coastal native species and work for funding to expand the restoration efforts and increase opportunities for educational field trips!
We will also continue to host Second Saturday Workdays at our urban project sites. Workdays will rotate quarterly between Kaha Garden (February 10th & May 12th) and Windward Community College Hale 'Imiloa Rain Garden (April 14th).
Thank you for your support of Hui o Ko'olaupoko as we continue our work on public land project sites. We hope you will have an opportunity to experience one of our amazing project sites with us in 2018.
