FOLK hosts Kahaluu Bay talk (Nov. 10)

MEDIA RELEASE

Find out what remarkable things are happening at Kahaluu Bay 5:30–6:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 10, at the Kailua-Kona Public Library.

Over the years, Kahaluu Bay has suffered from heavy usage. With more than 400,000 users a year, the bay’s coral reef is threatened and the beach has fallen into disrepair and overuse.

The Kahaluu Bay Project has more than 390 trained volunteers and over three dozen businesses working to bring back the cultural, natural, and social significance of this area.

Cindi Punihaole, community outreach and volunteer coordinator with The Kohala Center, which manages the Kahaluu Bay Project, will describe how to start a ReefTeach Program in your area, how businesses can Adopt-a-Day at Kahaluu Bay, the benefit Bay Concert, Outreach ReefTeach training for elementary, intermediate and secondary schools, water quality monitoring by the Citizen Science Program at Kahaluu, and how volunteers can help educate visitors at Kahaluu Bay.

For more information, contact Punihaole at cpunihaole@kohalacenter.org or 895-1010.

Sponsored by Friends of the Libraries, Kona, this program is offered free to the public.
