Hawaiki Rising: Hōkūle‘a, Nainoa Thompson and the Hawaiian Renaissance. Author Sam Low tells the story in the words of the men and women who voyaged aboard the Polynesian sailing canoe, Hōkūle‘a. The crew members grew up at time when their Hawaiian culture was in danger of extinction and their future in their own land was uncertain. Overcoming fear by trusting in the vision of islands rising from the sea, Nainoa Thompson and his crew became the first Hawaiians to navigate the Pacific without charts or instruments in a thousand years. Join Sam Low for a special evening celebrating the release of his new book. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free.

 
When: Tues., June 25, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium 
Wai'ohinu Coastline
Wai‘ōhinu Coastline. The Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund (www.wildhawaii.org) and volunteers have been working on conservation issues along the Wai‘ōhinu coastline in southeast Hawai‘i since 2001. Perhaps best known for their marine debris removal efforts, they have also been active with anchialine pool restoration, hawksbill (honu‘ea) sea turtle research, and coastal strand restoration projects in this remote region in Ka‘ū. Marine biologist and HWF project coordinator, Megan Lamson, will discuss the unique natural and cultural resources of this region, share the progress of their conservation work, and present some opportunities to participate in upcoming volunteer events.
