Ka‘ena Point State Park
Monday, April 19, 2021 from 8:00am - Pau
Ka'ena Point State Park- Keawaʻula section
PROJECT: RESTORATION AT KAʻENA POINT STATE PARK– KEAWAʻULA SECTION (WEST)
This out-planting site was cleared and planted by many Waiʻanae intermediate students, with the help of our sister Division of Forestry and Wildlife. The water used from the showers has been redirected by an ʻauwai dug by volunteers, this ditch feeds into the native plants providing a vital resource to the natives planted in this dry section of the park. We will remove invasive plant species at this restoration site in Keawaʻula, as well as extend the ʻauwai.
We may use various tools including trowels, folding saws, loppers, and shovels. Participants will experience the scenic Waiʻanae coast, and learn about Ka'ena’s natural and cultural resources. Activities are subject to change depending on program needs and/or weather.
