Hakipu’u Watershed Walk with hui o ko`olaupoko

Hakipu'u Watershed Walk
September 3, 2011
8am-11am

RSVP needed
$10 per person

Watershed Walks are events aimed at helping communities become more familiar with their ahupua'a and empower them to take actions to improve the health of the ecosystem. Watershed Walks focus on a variety of topics, such as:
· makai stream connection
· mauka origins of streams
· historic & cultural significance
· native & invasive species
· water quality
· current projects and groups active in the area
· individual actions to improve water quality

The September 3rd Watershed Walk will tour the Hakipu'u ahupua'a through Kualoa Ranch property. We will view the stream and shoreline area from our meeting location and then begin our hike mauka. The mauka portion of the tour will require some strenuous walking on dirt roads with uneven terrain, mud and possible interactions with motorized ranch tours and livestock. Community representatives will be on hand to discuss native/invasive plant species, watershed function, water quality and the historic & cultural significance of the Hakipu'u watershed. The Hakipu'u Watershed Walk will wrap up at 11AM at the morning meeting location with time for questions and a final look around.

This event will cost $10 per person to help cover staff time.
Space is limited for this event so a confirmed RSVP is needed.

Upon confirmation of your reservation, you will receive an
e-mail with detailed meeting times and locations for the Hakipu'u Watershed Walk.

Please call or e-mail our Community Coordinator at 381-7202 or nalani@huihawaii.org to make your reservations.

#Windward #Ahupua`a #Alliance August Events – hike change

NIGHT BEFORE THE FULL MOON HIKE
Makapu`u Point

5:30 pm
FRIDAY, AUGUST 12

The Windward Ahupua`a Alliance, which originally planned the hike in July but had to cancel it at the last minute, has re-scheduled it for FRIDAY, AUGUST 12 - the night before the actual full moon. The white globe will rise up out of the ocean at 6:25 pm Friday.

Attendees should park in the large lot at the base of the two-mile Makapu`u Trail and meet us at the entrance between 5:15 pm & 5:30 pm - look for the sign - which is when we'll start up the relatively easy incline.

Be sure to wear (real) shoes with gripping soles. It also gets breezy during the late afternoon so do secure your hats/caps and bring along a hoodie or a long-sleeved t-shirt. And, yes, bring along some water in a re-usable bottle.

The sun sets that day at 7:04 pm so we'll start heading back down about 15 minutes beforehand.

Afterwards, we'll head on over to Hawaii Kai for a hosted dinner. Please call 247-6366 ext. 1# to sign up so we know how many are coming. Be sure to provide complete contact information - including your cell phone number.
