Aloha Maunakea volunteers!

The next Office of Maunakea Management (OMKM) Mālama Maunakea volunteer day will be held on Saturday, July 22.

As part of its Mālama Maunakea campaign to protect the resources on the mountain OMKM organizes Saturday volunteer weed pulls to control fireweed (Senecio madagascariensis) and other invasive plant species around the Halepōhaku area on Maunakea at the 9,000' elevation.

Transportation to and from Hilo and lunch are provided. Departure from Hilo is 8 am and returning around 3:30pm. Please let us know if you're coming from other parts of the island and we'll help coordinate transportation. 

This is a great opportunity to get up above the clouds on Maunakea and lend a hand in managing the mountain.
