Spring Equinox Planting
Spring Equinox Planting

In celebration of Spring Equinox on March 17th HER planted a variety of 41 seedlings grown and donated by our nursery manager, Ann Kobsa (kopiko,‘ohe, kopiko, alahe’e, ‘ohi’a, akia, maile, phytolacca, and akiohala,). Another 150 native hala seedlings were dispersed in a more disturbed pocket of the site for eventual shade support. A total of 191 seedlings were planted with the help of 10 volunteers, accomplishing 45 volunteer hours. The team also embarked upon invasive species control in an area riddled with clidemia, which was a bonus to the day!

For HER, every day is EARTH DAY! On April 22nd it was the first time we could again gather at the University of Hilo campus since Covid-19, and the turnout was splendid! The event hosted bus loads of students from schools all over the Big Island. President  Jaya C. Dupuis was supported by two wonderful board members/volunteers (cultural advisor, Thomas Brennon, and Secretary/treasurer Batya Okunov)  creatively engaging students and faculty around learning the plant species that surround us here in Hawaii, and the difference between native vs invasive species. HER recruited 16 new e-mail subscribers and volunteers during this dynamic event

The month of May was an active month for HER in terms of environmental awareness and community building! The Hala Festival for one, brought so many people together in celebration of our cherished native species! HER recruited 36 enthusiastic subscribers and volunteers, the highest number in HER outreach event history. Among other events we also hosted a large group of students from Trinity University BC, Canada which was a huge success. Please take a moment to have a look at HER blog for more details and pictures of our activities!  hawaiienvironmentalrestoration.org/blog/ 

The month of June brings summer Solstice our way, and we hope the weather will support another planting opportunity in Keau'ohana! In either case we will hold a restoration opportunity for those wishing to give the rainforest a hand!
