The Annual Environmental Education Symposium Will be Held Next Week
The Hawaii Environmental Education Alliance will be holding its 8th annual Environmental Education Symposium next week.
This yearʻs theme is “Strengthening Sense of Hawaiʻi: Cultivating Community Relationships Through Environmental Education and Stewardship.”
The two-day conference will engage participants in hands-on field trips and interactive workshops.
Attendees will be able to choose to go on a field trip with the Maui Nui Seabird Recovery Project, The Nature Conservancy, ‘Ao‘ao O Nā Loko I‘a O Maui, or Hui O Waʻa Kaulua.
Activities on the field trips will include hiking, removing invasive species, restoring native seabird habitats, learning about navigation and sailing on a traditional Hawaiian canoe, or helping to rebuild a traditional Hawaiian fishpond. Lunch and transportation will be provided, along with a “pizza pau hana” at the end of the day.
The second day will feature presentations, workshops, panel speakers, hands-on activities, and interactive booths. Participants will have a chance to learn about diverse environmental education resources available to them in their communities and across the state.
The symposium will be held on Oct. 7 and 8 at Kamehameha Schools Maui campus.
