Waimea Outdoor Circle announces another volunteer day in Ulu La'au, the Waimea Nature Park, this Saturday, April 18, 9:00-Noon.
There are jobs for all ages and abilities, no knowledge of Hawaiian plants is necessary, we will happily train. Water, gloves and tools are provided as is a snack of fresh fruit and home baked cookies served at noon.
We have the 3rd graders from Waimea Elementary coming next week and in preparation for them mulching trees with mac nut mulch we need to weed the areas they will be working in before the mulch is applied. Co-chair Carol Hendricks will direct you to the places she needs worked on.
Regular mowing and weed eating will also be done as the rain has everything growing rapidly.
Waimea Nature Park is a project of Waimea Outdoor Circle created joyfully by 100% volunteer work from everyone, including people like you. The park is open during daylight hours and closes at 5:30 PM. The park is located directly behind Canada France Hawaii Telescope offices on Mamalahoa Hwy. Look for the Hawaiian Warrior sign on the CFH lawn and turn into the no name road there that leads directly into the park. Please do not park on the CFH lawn, the Nature Park has plenty of parking available. For more information contact park co-chairs Carol Hendricks at 885-4453, Roz Wright at 885-2763 or park maintenance chair Ken Block at 885-4753.
Photo above is of one of the many memorial trees in the Park. This is Brigitte Rutger's ohia, located just above the waterfall in bed "G". It is full of liko and flowers, truly a living memory for a wonderful lady, one of Waimea Outdoor Circle's founders.
