HWMO will be heading down to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park for the second straight BioBlitz and Cultural Festival. This year's theme: "E Hoʻomau" - to perpetuate; to continue in a way that causes good to be long-lasting.
The festival will be held on the lawn at the Kilauea Military Camp located inside the park.
"The 36th annual cultural festival invites people of all ages to engage in authentic Hawaiian cultural practices and learn how native Hawaiians lived closely to the land as its stewards. Enjoy hula and music, watch skilled practitioners demonstrate their art, and try your hand at Hawaiian crafts. This year's festival will again include a "BioBlitz," a fun and hands-on opportunity to observe and document the biodiversity that thrives in the lava flows and native rainforests of Kīlauea Volcano, led by individuals and organizations at the forefront of conservation, science and traditional Hawaiian culture. The BioBlitz runs from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the cultural festival is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors can learn about the importance of conservation and biodiversity through interactive exhibits at the festival."
