BWET: Mahalo nui loa to Punahou summer school teachers and students for welcoming UH botanist and I to their Marine Science Class field trip at Wailupe Mud Flats. UH botanist spoke on “What makes a healthy reef” and “what are invasive algae” and invited the students to join her at the next invasive algae cleanup. Students collected specimens (fish, crabs, clams, loli, etc.) for their classroom aquarium. We heard excited voices as they came across a special critter… nature provided the perfect outdoor classroom for students to experience the thrill of discovery…

BWET: Wonderful to talk story with UH Botanist's new summer interns from the South Pacific Islands. The interns are from Fiji, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Pohnpei, Guam, American Samoa, Montana and Micronesia. They helped to remove invasive algae in front of the Waikiki Aquarium and searched for wana (sea urchins). UH Botanist, her Grad student, and interns enjoyed a day of fun in the sun.

BWET: Mahalo nui loa to  East High School teacher, Voyaging students, and kumu from KSBE for an amazing morning of learning about kalo. Homegrown on campus, students huki (pulled), cleaned, steamed and ku’i’ai (to pound food) sweet kalo. Kumu from KSBE brought papa ku’i’ai (Poi pounding boards) and pohaku (stones) to show students the molokai style of pounding poi, explained that each island does it a little differently. Everyone in the class had a turn including East High School teacher, Mr. Ikeda and I...a first for me...incredible feeling that this is what our ancestors did to feed their communities...very thankful to East High School teacher and her students for giving me this extraordinary experience…
