Richard is one of the premier experts today on Hawaiian trails and has worked extensively as a “trail hunter” and researcher for the State Division of Forestry & Wildlife and the Research Corporation of the University of Hawai`i. He currently teaches classes at UH-West Hawaii when he’s not writing books and articles on trails and organic gardening. This is the June portion of a community lecture series for 2012 that spotlights local and state speakers on a wide variety of cultural and historical subjects. Presented by Kona Historical Society, in cooperation with the County of Hawai’i, this lecture series is a gift from the Society to the community that has supported it for so long.
