rebirth cemetary west hawaii veterans restoration forest big island hawaii
REBIRTH IN THE HEART OF A CEMETERY: WEST HAWAI`I VETERANS CEMETERY AND RESTORATION OF KONA’S FORESTS
Date: Wednesday, September 26th, 5:30pm - 7pm, 2012
Place: West Hawai`i Civic Center, Kealakehe Parkway, Kailua Kona, Big Island
Contact: Hawai‘i Volcanoes Institute, (808) 985-7373, institute@fhvnp.org
Dr. Richard Stevens joins us to talk about restoring a part of the disappearing native habitats of Dryland Forests in Hawaii, specifically at the West Hawaii Veterans Cemetery. Since there is only about 10 percent of native dry land forest remaining in Hawaii’s ecosystems, these forests have become an extremely endangered habitat that is on the brink of extinction. With most humans residing on the coastal parts of each island, where most dry land forests are seen to grow, these forests are one of the most threatened habitats in Hawai’i. Dr. Stevens will feature his slideshow on the “how to” of a reforestation project, often using endangered plants, and discuss the challenges and successes. Dr. Stevens is a UH-West Hawai`i lecturer who has written several books on nature and organic gardening in Hawai`i.

NATIONAL PUBLIC LANDS DAY - VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK
Date: Saturday, September 29th, 2012
Place: Volcano National Park, Big Island
Contact: Hawai‘i Volcanoes Institute, (808) 985-7373, institute@fhvnp.org
National Public Land’s Day (NPLD) is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance America’s public lands. In 2011, 2,030 sites hosted NPLD volunteer activities, and 170,000 volunteers removed trash and invasive weeds, built and maintained trails, and planted trees, shrubs, and native plants. In honor of NPLD, the National Park Service holds a “Free Fee” day annually on the last Saturday of September. Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park stations volunteers at the park entrance to solicit donations from visitors to help raise funds for our many projects that support the park. We also provide opportunities for volunteers to participate in service projects such as invasive species removal and native species planting. Please assist us on this important day!
