Join the battle against Erythrina gall wasps
A new, tiny alien pest is invading! We're talking about the Erythrina gall wasp, which is chomping on Magic Island's red-flowered coral trees, called Erythrina variegata, as well as our native wiliwili, E. sandwicensis.
An invasion of Erythrina gall wasps has resulted in deformed leaves and stems of coral trees at Magic Island.

BEAT HEAT, FEEL BEAT AT JAZZ AND BLUES PARTY
With summer temperatures nearing peaks, tonight's ARTafterDARK "Cool Nights, Hot Jazz (& Blues)" party couldn't go down at a better time. Along with local jazz and blues musicians like the Noel Okimoto Jazz Quartet and the Geronimo Band playing live in the Honolulu Academy of Arts courtyards, you'll find the usual themed food, drink and we're hoping a dance floor to work all of it off on. And bonus! Sponsor Starbucks Coffee's Frappuccino Chill Patrol will be on hand to keep the heat down with its own brain-freezing riff on a good old-fashioned caffeine buzz. From 6 to 9 p.m., $7 (free for academy members).
