WAIMEA, Hawaii – Another volunteer day will be held this Saturday in the Waimea Nature Park, also known as Ulu La’au. Organizers say “there are jobs for all ages and abilities, no knowledge of Hawaiian plants is necessary, we will happily train,” and they say this time they need chainsaws.
From the Waimea Outdoor Circle:
|We have two areas that need chain saws:
1. Lower bed “I” along the stream where several eucalyptus and black wattle trees are getting taller.
2. Across the stream along the trail behind Longs Drugs there are a couple of black wattles that are down and blocking the path.
Other jobs include
3. Spreading chips on the trail along bed “H” and in bed “H”.
4. Weeding as needed.
5. Weed whack above beds “H” and “I”.Water, gloves and tools are provided as is a snack of fresh fruit and home made cookies served at noon.
The outdoor circle is also looking for folks to adopt a garden bed:
|We are in need of a few groups or individuals who are willing to adopt a garden bed and keep it weed free. You will see many “this garden bed adopted by” signs around the park and a longer notice about it on the bulletin board. Please call anyone listed below for further information or just show up on a work day and we’ll show you which garden beds need adopting.
