Field Trip: Paepae O He‘eia Fishpond Tour
Saturday, January 28, 2012
9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. | He‘eia Fishpond, Kaneohe
Tuition: $10 General Public; Members are Free

Meet us for a guided walking tour of the 88-acre Paepae O He‘eia fishpond with Hi‘ilei Kawelo to learn about the rich history of He‘eia fishpond and limu species, both native and invasive, that populate the traditional loko i‘a (fishpond).  After sharing wahi pana and mo‘olelo of this storied landscape, Hi‘ilei will concentrate on the invasive species that impact the fishpond, but are highly edible as part of their control efforts to preserve this important Hawaiian tradition.
