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.
