The first Saturday of every month is Ohana Day at the Kaua‘i Museum, with free admission and special activities.
Tomorrow from 10 a.m. to noon, Don Heacock, the Kaua‘i District Aquatic Biologist for the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, will present a slide-show on Kaua‘i’s unique island ecosystems.
The 25-year DLNR veteran will talk about the island’s forests, streams, estuaries, wetlands and coral reefs. Heacock will focus on traditional Hawaiian natural resource conservation practices, the ahupua‘a or holistic integrated watershed resource management techniques, and other ways that we as watershed stewards can help guide and build a sustainable Kaua‘i island community.
The 2007 Hawai‘i State Legislature will be addressing the issue of developing a sustainable Hawai‘i; much of the development in Hawai‘i to date is unsustainable and is negatively impacting both the environment and native Hawaiians.
