Na­ture Con­ser­vancy Heads Fe­bru­ary Se­ries

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Em­manuel Epis­co­pal Church con­tin­ues its free pub­lic speak­ers se­ries Thurs­day with staff from The Na­ture Con­ser­vancy, who will dis­cuss “Heal­ing an Ahupua‘a.”

The talk be­gins at 7 p.m. at the church, lo­cated at 780 Ke­olu Drive.

Ryan Carr, a mem­ber of the Ka­neohe Bay “su­per sucker” team, and TNC’s se­nior com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Eve­lyn Wight will brief lis­ten­ers on the group’s mis­sion in Hawaii, par­tic­u­larly as it af­fects the Wind­ward side and its vi­tal wa­ter­shed.

TNC is work­ing with state and com­mu­nity part­ners to re­store nat­u­ral re­sources (such as the bay’s coral) and bring back tra­di­tional agri­cul­ture. The two so-called su­per suck­ers are un­der­wa­ter vac­u­ums that the team em­ploys to re­move in­va­sive species from the bay’s coral bed.
