Join us for a morning of hands-on learning and building connections. We are nestled in the heart of Maunawili Valley and subject to changes in weather regularly. You might experience hot sun or pouring rain. Be prepared for both. The lo’i is located in the headwaters of Kawainui Marsh and is a natural wetland with all kinds of wildlife. Expect to encounter tadpoles, guppies, frogs and a variety of beautiful bird species. You will have an incredible encounter with nature in a beautiful and serene setting. The work is challenging and the mud is deep. Integrated into your day will be meaningful Hawaiian values and lessons to make your time rich and memorable. We are looking forward to spending the day with you.
