Workday Information

Date and Time: 

  • Saturday, April 24, 2021, 9am-12pm

  • Park at Hale A'o

No registration needed! We are meeting at the Rain Garden.

What's Going On?

Volunteer work day in celebration of Earth Week to learn about native plant species and the important watershed management role of rain gardens from Jon and Teresa.  Together we will contribute to the management and restoration of this native plant habitat as well as outplant donated native Hawaiian plant species.

What to Bring

Please bring water, long pants, covered shoes, and gloves (carex grass can irritate exposed skin).  Hand tools will be provided.

Pandemic Precautions

We are practicing physical distancing. Please remember your mask, volunteers will be spread out around the rain garden during hana to maintain physical distance.


This will be an ongoing project twice a month, we encourage those interested in seeking knowledge in botany to continue along this journey with us.  The rain garden though subtle at first glance is a great controlled environment to study native plants and their growth cycles, and the more time you spend in a place, the more lessons it is able to reveal to you. Whether it's to help us collaborate on its care or just to find a few meditative hours of solace for a few hours a month, our hope is to build a volunteer ohana around our shared goals.
