We will meet at KMC (Kilauea Military Camp: 99-252 Crater Rim Dr, Volcano, HI 96785 ) in front of the Admin building which is the large building in the front row of buildings near the flagpole.  There is parking available there.  We will take care of paperwork, do a brief intro, brush boots to remove non-native seeds and spray the boots with isopropyl alcohol for Rapid Ohia Death prevention.  (Time 8:30 - 9:00). We will then drive to the Devastation Trail parking lot where the hike will begin.  The hike will take about 45 minutes and will include an introduction to the native forest and geology.  The hike will end up at the work site.  We will explain the work process and get to work.  (Time 9:00 - 12:00.)

Join our Collaborative Service Project on Saturday, July 16th, 2022 with Eco Rotary Club of Kaka'ako on Oahu and the Rotary Clubs of Hilo, Hilo Bay, South Hilo, Pahoa Sunset and Volcano. Come help out the park and the 'āina (land) by cutting invasive himalayan ginger (Heydechium gardnerianum) on park trails. Loppers and gloves are provided. Participants are encouraged to wear long sleeve shirts, long pants and closed toed shoes. Work is often in the shade of the forest with sweet sounds of native honey creepers like 'apapane, 'amakihi and 'ōma'o above to serenade as you work. Water, snacks, rain gear and sun protection are recommended. The hike is around a 3-4 miles, moderate round trip. The hike involves walking over rough uneven terrain on a dirt and rock path, with up to a 400' elevation change. We plan to have a guide and learn more about the park, it's history, culture and native plants and animals!

If there are any other friends or club members still needing to fill out the registration/waiver link please do so asap: www.bit.ly/Volcano-2022. I also added all this information to that link so if anyone doesn’t get this email reminder, it will have the updated information above, directions, parking and what to bring all in the details portion where anyone can refer to.
