Loko iʻa workday at ʻAimakapā (Kona, Hawaiʻi)

May 12 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us this Saturday, May 12th as we put our hands to the ‘āina to mālama ‘Aimakapā.

Work at ‘Aimakapā Fishpond will begin at 8 AM and last until just before lunch.  Light snacks will be provided but please bring any extra food or snacks you may want.

Please meet us at the Visitor Center at 8 AM for introductions and a safety briefing.  

For this workday, we plan to pull weeds from the muddy wetland as well as the removal of non-native invasive vegetation from the dryland areas surrounding the south shore of the fishpond.

Close-toed shoes are required for work at the fishpond.  If you have tabis please bring them.  Also, sturdy thorn proof shoes are recommended as we may be working in and around kiawe thorns.  A hat, sunscreen, long sleeve shirt and long pants are recommended.  Water, tools, and gloves will be provided.

Please RSVP to Jackson Letchworth (jackson_letchworth@nps.gov) if you plan to attend.  Mahalo!
