MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER / NOVEMBER 6, 2013 / PAGE 3 -

Ocean lovers, take note: Hanauma Bay seeks vol­un­teers to be in­ter­pre­tive guides to park visi­tors, and its ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram is train­ing prospec­tive can­di­dates on Satur­day morn­ings through mid-Novem­ber at the na­ture pre­serve.

The train­ing cov­ers the his­tory, ge­ol­ogy, reef ecol­ogy and cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance of the bay and the city park pro­grams there. Can­di­dates also will be able to ex­plore the pre­serve through a hike, scav­enger hunt and guided snor­kel­ing. Once trained, vol­un­teers are ex­pected to work four hours per week for six months, with shifts run­ning from 8 a.m. to noon and noon to 4 p.m. daily ex­cept Tues­days.

To in­quire about train­ing, call Mor­gan Mamizuka at 394- 1374 or email hbvp@hawaii.edu. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit hanaum­abayed­u­ca­tion.org.
