Keau’ohana Fall Equinox Event

HER Fall equinox event on September 24th was a rainy day in the Keau’ohana paradise, and the 28 seedlings planted welcomed every drop! It was an exciting array of native plant species that have a historical presence in this low elevation region but that are largely rare today: among them are papala kepau, manono, ho’awa, hame, loulu, olomea, oha kepau. We are blessed to give them this opportunity to thrive in a rare native lowland habitat amid ancient peers!

Again we want to thank Will Stein and Rain Pacifico who nurtured the babies from seed. They had been looking forward to this special moment of release into the forest of Keau’ohana, where we hope they shall prosper! We also want to thank several of our volunteers who travelled from Kona side to participate in this event. It was a wet but heartwarming time together!
