Educational Tours:

  • The Nā Pōhaku Ecology Group (NPEG) is preparing a self-guided touring package for Nā Pōhaku State Park Reserve based on QR Code tags distributed along park trails. The system will be rolled out beginning in March 2022 and entails visitors self-guiding by accessing with their smart-phone the websites retrieved from the QR Codes. The websites will provide site-specific notes on plant names, cultural aspects of the plants or sites, and point-to-point directions for the trail system. More information on using this self-guiding tour is provided at QR PARK GUIDES. By way of example of a guide page is this one located at the park entrance: Aloha. E komo mai!


Educational Material & Position Papers:

‘Ahahui Mālama i ka Lōkahi is part of a video about Kawainui Marsh produced by Think Tech on OC16. This video provides up-to-date information about what the DLNR and groups like ‘Ahahui Mālama i ka Lōkahi are doing to restore the natural and cultural resources of Kawainui Marsh. The video runs about 18 minutes and was shot at the DLNR bird ponds located in the area below Castle Medical Center. The video (on youTube) can be accessed from the link on our blog page.

The ‘Ahahui logo was designed by Sam ‘Ohukani‘ōhi'a Gon III and Mike Naho‘opi‘i and incorporates plants and animals from the land and the sea. On land (upper) is a nuku‘i‘iwi vine with a carnivorous caterpillar, and to the right, a mamo (a honeycreeper used for featherwork). For the sea (lower) there is a monk seal (‘īlio-holo-i-ka-uaua), a hā‘uke‘uke (purple urchin), and a limu kala (important medicinal and protocol seaweed). Within this lei of life is a petroglyph of a family, representing Hawaiian lifestyle and community. Above the figures is a triple circle, symbol of the three-fold mission of our ‘Ahahui: stewardship, culture, and education. The symbol is a closed oval, signifying the circle of ecological relationships between plants and animals, and between land and sea. Humans are embraced within this relationship, and via cultural practices and spiritual links (e.g., via ‘aumakua) are part of the circle as well. We stand for informed, responsible stewardship of the land and sea.
