'Sweep of Hawaiian Ecosystems' free talk
A virtual adventure dubbed “Hawaii Kua Uli — The Sweep of Hawaiian Ecosystems” is slated for March 31 at ING Direct Café in Waikïkï.
Samuel M. Ohukani ohi a Gon III, a senior scientist and cultural advisor for The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii, will serve as guide for the coast-to-summit trek — from Lake Waiau to streams feeding the sea, and surface waters to subterranean regions.
Gon’s talk offers a blend of scientific and cultural perspectives on the systems, plants and animals that reside in the various environments of the Islands.
The free event, set for 6-7:30 p.m., part of the ongoing Natural Treasures of Hawaii Lecture Series, is organized through a partnership between the Hawaii Conservation Alliance and ING Direct. Each attendee will receive a coupon for one free beverage to redeem at the ING Direct Café.
