Moku'auia Wildlife Sanctuary
Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 9:00am - 2:00pm
Meet at Malaekahana State Recreation Area
Join the DLNR Offshore Islets program for a day of habitat restoration on Moku'auia (Goat) Island in Laie on Saturday 5/17/2014! Moku'auia is a seabird sanctuary offshore from Malaekanaha State Park. A few invasive plant species present on the island may negatively impact the nesting success of the wedge-tailed shearwaters. We will be removing alien plants in certain areas of seabird burrowing to encourage native plant growth.
Signing-up online is required, as space is limited: https://dlnr.ivolunteer.com/#6
Please meet at Malaekanaha State Recreation Area (56-020 Kamehameha Hwy), and expect to be present 9am-2pm. Moku'auia is located 400yards offshore from the State park, and we will walk to the island across the ocean channel, so participants must be able to swim. Tabis or water shoes are required for the walk across. DLNR has some sizes, so let us know ahead of time if you require tabis. Bring water and a lunch, as we will eat on island.
Participation in this event is limited to adults 18 years and over. If you would like to bring a minor to the trip, approval from DLNR is required prior to signing up.
More details will be provided in the confirmation email following sign-up. Additional questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
