Next service trip

WhenNext trip is scheduled for Saturday, Aug 11th, 2018 from 9am to 2pm.

Where: Lyon Arboretum at 3860 Manoa Road. Meet in the Lyon Arboretum parking lot at 9:00am.

What to bring: Daypack, water (at least 2 liters), lunch, sturdy hiking shoes and rain gear. Long pants and long-sleeved shirt are recommended.

MissionWe will focus on the removal of two invasive plant species: Ardisia virens and Stromanthe tonckat. Lyon Arboretum is the only location on Oahu where these species are found, which means with your help we can work toward completely eliminating them from the island so that they are no longer a threat!

Note: Volunteers will be hand-pulling plants and hiking off-trail in moderately steep to steep terrain with exposure to sun, rain, mosquitoes and muddy conditions. Volunteers should be physically fit for strenuous activity. Participants will be required to sign a waiver and provide emergency contact information.
