Volunteers sought for invasive plant removal

LIHUE — Volunteers will assist in removing invasive weeds in the vicinity of critically endangered plant species in the native forest ecosystem in Kokee from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today.

Botanist Wendy Kishida from the Kauai Plant Extinction Prevention Program and other conservation organizations will provide training for volunteers on plant identification for both native and non-native plants.

“We hope these hands-on activities in the forest classroom will connect volunteers to nature and increase their commitment to preserve the unique and rare native plant communities of Kokee,” Kishida said.

All ages are welcome.
