April’s Volunteer Trip at Lyon will be cancelled due to Lyon’s Annual Spring Plant Sale.
The next volunteer trip will be Saturday, May 13th, 2017 from 9:00am-2:00pm
Lyon Arboretum at 3860 Manoa Road. Meet in the Lyon Arboretum parking lot at 9:00am.
What to bring:
Daypack, water (at least 2 liters), insect repellent, lunch, sturdy hiking shoes and rain gear. Long pants and long-sleeved shirt are highly recommended.
We will focus on the removal of two invasive plant species – Ardisia virens and Stromanthe tonckat. Lyon Arboretum is the only location on O‘ahu where these species are found, which means with your help we can work toward completely eliminating them from the island so that they are no longer a threat!
Volunteers will be hand-pulling plants and hiking off-trail in moderately steep to steep terrain with exposure to sun, rain, mosquitoes and muddy conditions. Volunteers should be physically fit for strenuous activity. Participants will be required to sign a waiver and provide emergency contact information. Children ages 12-17 yrs. must have parent/guardian signature. Children ages 12-14 must have an adult accompany them for the duration of the trip. Please call 808-266-7994 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
