Help Restore Historic Kanewai Spring in Kuli'ou'ou | Community Spirit
When: Aug. 7th (Sunday), 8: 30-11:30 am
What: Kanewai Spring is a fresh water fishpond which feeds through a makaha to Kanewai Fishpond. Kanewai Fishpond is the last functioning shoreline fishpond in Honolulu (with the exception of Mokauea Island). The fishpond was assessed to have historic properties meriting a listing on the State Historic Register and satisfied the National Historic Register criteria. It is the home to many native fish and invertebrates such as kaku, aholehole, ‘opae, o‘opu and hapawai.
Why: Volunteers can make a difference in the health of the pond by helping with the removal of invasive plants from the spring. We will have a Matson container brought in for the workday.
Where: Meet at the entrance to Paiko Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary located on Kuli‘ou‘ou Road (off of Kalaniana‘ole Hwy). At 8:50am we will walk to the Spring located at 5975 Kalaniana‘ole Hwy. Street parking is available on the makai end of Kuli‘ou‘ou Road and Summer Street.
What to Bring: water bottle, sunscreen, protective clothing and sturdy shoes.
