On Saturday, September 27 from 9 am to 3 pm, Big Island residents and visitors can stop by the annual Wiliwili Festival in Waikoloa Village to learn more about dry forest preservation. This year, command central is at Waikoloa Stables, but dry forest tours will depart hourly from 8 am to 1 pm. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Waikoloa Dry Forest Initiative’s 275 acre restoration project, this is a great opportunity to take a detour onto the less traveled path and spend some time getting to know the South Kohala dry forest.
At the stables, there will be plant giveaways (arrive early!), plants for sale, educational workshops, vendors, activities for the younger visitors and music by John Keawe and Kahulanui. To sign up for a tour or workshop, contact Jen Lawson at email@example.com or by calling (808) 494-2208.
