Hawai‘i Public Seed Initative: Train the Trainers
September 13-15, 2013
A local not-for-profit center is connecting West Hawaii communities interested in conservation and management of their fishery with easy-to-use tools that allow greater stewardship of fish populations. The Kohala Center developed a voluntary spawning guide, a colorful poster rich with pictures and information teaching users to fish more responsibly, to help preserve Hawaii’s vibrant and precious marine resources.
Jim Cain doesn't sugarcoat it: Farming is tough work. Profits can fluctuate from year to year, making long-term planning both vital and next to impossible. It's not a 9-to-5, and it's rarely five days a week. It requires commitment and passion and a joy for working outdoors. In short, farming is not for everyone.
School garden teachers, classroom teachers, administrators, staff, volunteers, and interested community members from around the state may register now for the annual Hawai‘i Island School Garden Network (HISGN) summer symposium in June on Hawai‘i Island.
The symposium, “School Learning Gardens and Sustainability Education: Bringing Schools to Life and Life to Schools,” will be held June 7–8 in Kamuela at the Gates Performing Arts Center at Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy and Māla‘ai: The Culinary Garden of Waimea Middle School.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for our ReefTeach team!
Kahalu‘u Bay receives hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. For many visitors, this is their first experience on the reef, and many have little or no knowledge about the reef and its importance to marine life.
ReefTeachers educate visitors about how to reduce their impact on the reef while enjoying ocean activities such as swimming and snorkeling.
ReefTeach volunteers have the flexibility of choosing hours that fit their personal schedules. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate.
For more information regarding ReefTeach or other volunteer opportunities with the Kahalu‘u Bay Project, contact Cindi Punihaole, Volunteer and Public Outreach Coordinator at 808-895-1010 or by e-mail at email@example.com
Volunteer with the Kohala Watershed Partnership
The Kohala Watershed Partnership community volunteer program involves local residents in stewardship of the forests of Kohala Mountain. One Saturday a month, volunteers meet for a workday that involves weed whacking, collecting native seeds, planting native species, and hiking in the forest. People of all ages and experience levels are welcome to join in for good fun and good work. Most work days run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Bring along boots, rain gear, lunch, and a positive attitude, and the following will be provided: gloves, tools, snacks, breathtaking scenery, and uplifting service.
For further information, contact Melora Purell, Coordinator, at 808-333-0976 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
