Celebrate Something We All Share: Our Public Lands!
On November 14, 2017, we will continue our celebration of National Public Lands Day (NPLD). Please join us for day two of our restoration project in Kahanahaiki as we outplant native species in areas previously weeded by volunteers. We will also spend time collecting native fruits/seeds. Some seeds will be re-introduced to the forest on this day, while others will be brought to the OANRP seed conservation lab for safe keeping and future re-introduction dates.
PROJECT: We will use small trowels for planting and will use long handled pickers for collecting fruit.
HIKING TIME: 2 to 2.5 hours (round trip)
DIFFICULTY: Moderate; some elevation gain. Some steep drop-offs along the trail.
WHAT TO BRING: Long pants, long sleeve shirt and shoes with good traction. Please review the suggested packing list.
