Celebrate Something We All Share: Our Public Lands!
In celebration of National Public Lands Day, join us in supporting the restoration of native forests by helping construct a native plant shadehouse at the Army Natural Resources Baseyard at Schofield Barracks. We will also take time to tour the Army’s seed conservation lab and native Hawaiian interpretive garden.
The shadehouse will provide much needed extra space for growing native plants that will be outplanted in the native forests of the Wai’anae Mountains.
