Hike Waiheʻe Ridge & Remove Invasive Guava Trees

Join a Volunteer Stewardship Day on the scenic Waihe’e Ridge Trail to help control invasive strawberry guava trees while talking story on the importance of a healthy watershed and threats to our native rainforests.  Strawberry guava has been recognized as one of the most invasive weeds in the state, so we appreciate your help.  We will hike about half way up the trail (1.5 miles) for the control work which will involve cutting smaller diameter trees and frilling larger ones.  All tools provided (includes handsaws and gloves and safe herbicide).
