Puuwaawaa Cinder Cone Project Volunteer Day

From our friends at DLNR DOFAW Napuu Conservation Project:

"Hū aʻe ka uahi, paukaʻa i na kamaʻāina

As the smoke billows, the natives are completely consumed.
Fire threatens native ecosystems and if not prevented could destroy such ecosystems forever. - The Hawaiian Dryland Forest Education Guide

We are in summer season, and with that we must embrace the sun and heat that comes along with it. During these hot times, it's extremely important that we prevent forest fires, which is the #1 RISK to the dryland forest. 

Join us Wednesday 7/18 for our monthly volunteer day. We'll be working on fencing the pu'u for the community Pu'u Project. Details and RSVP below.
