About the event

Aloha and kia ora! Mahalo for joining us in Pia Valley for a morning of invasive species removal and native species outplanting to help restore the ecosystem's biodiversity. We appreciate your interest in wanting to learn more about Hawaiʻi's unique natural heritage by giving back.

We will meet in the cul-de-sac at the top of Anolani Street at 9 a.m. and walk into the valley together.

Please be respectful to our neighbors and park across the street from the houses, keep voices down, and don't block the turnaround in the cul-de-sac, their trash bins or mailboxes.

– SHOES ARE REQUIRED

– Reusable water bottle(s) and plenty of water (1/2 gallon recommended)

– Mosquito repellent

– Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen

TOOLS:

All community tools and gloves have been sanitized. We will provide tools and gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own tools/gloves (small hand saws and pick mattocks are welcome).

ACTIVITIES:

– A short hike to the restoration site in Pia Valley. This is a great time to check out what we are all about. See our vision for the valley with your own eyes and talk story.
