Loko iʻa workday at ʻAimakapā Fishpond (Kona, Hawaiʻi)
January 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for Mālama ‘Aimakapā Community Workday
Every second Saturday of the month 9a-12p
We hope you can join us this Saturday, January 11th, as we put our hands to the ‘āina to mālama ‘Aimakapā.
Work at ‘Aimakapā Fishpond will begin at 9 AM and last until just before lunch. Please bring any food or snacks you may need to sustain you during the day. Plenty of cold water will be provided.
Please meet us at the Visitor Center at 9 AM for introductions and a safety briefing. Please note the change in start time from 8 to 9.
For this workday, we plan to get in the pond and remove chunks of invasive grass. Be prepared to get very very muddy! For those who may not want to get in the pond, there are plenty of weeds to be removed 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 if you plan to attend (see flyer above for RSVP contact details!)
