Koke‘e State Park is hosting a lively forest-education and environmental fair Sunday.
Hosted by Hui o Laka, the 28th annual Banana Poka RoundUp will feature Hawaiian music, basketmaking, children’s games, crowing contest, forest crafts and hands-on exhibits from more than 10 environmental organizations.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., join Hui o Laka in making baskets from the vines of the banana poka, the poster child of harmful, invasive plant species present in the forests.
There will also be flower-arranging, lei-making, ono snacks and a silent auction.
The event moves from the stone pavilion at Kanaloahuluhulu Meadow to the historic Civilian Conservation Corps Camp operated by Hui o Laka. Parking will be at the stone pavilion (including handicap parking stalls) and camp area.
A shuttle will be provided for those not able to walk up the hill next to the Koke‘e Lodge to the camp. Pickups will be at the pavilion and Koke‘e Natural History Museum. No vehicles will be allowed at the camp. The event is sponsored by Hawaii Tourism Authority and the County of Kauai.
