*New Pilot Program for WINDWARD Middle Schools at Kawainui Marsh!
Starting SPRING 2017; FREE Program! Space is limited, register now!
This unique place-based science program offers hands-on, STEM-related field activities that focus on wetland ecology, endangered waterbirds, and traditional land management concepts for Kawainui Marsh. Through a special partnership with State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) and The University of Hawaii Center for Conservation of Research and Training (UH-CCRT), the program will take place at the Kawainui Ponds, an area carefully managed as a wetland sanctuary for endangered, native Hawaiian waterbirds. Due to gracious funding by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the program, including transportation, is FREE to students and teachers! There is limited space; priority goes to Windward Title 1 schools. Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in this invaluable educational experience!
