* Ike Kuokoa: Liberating Knowledge

More than 100 Hawaiian language newspapers were printed from 1834 to 1948, possibly the largest native-language cache in the western world. The papers were a repository of knowledge, opinion, and the historical progress of Hawaii, yet only two percent of the cache was readily available to the public. Ike Kuokoa is an effort to open up the resource to all. Join Puakea Nogelmeier as he describes the exciting project, and how you can get involved. Part of Hawaii Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free.

Increased drought, development near wilderness areas, an influx of invasive vegetation, and human-caused ignitions, all create hazardous conditions and place many human and ecological communities at risk for wildfire. The Hawaii Wildlife Management Organization (HWMO) works collaboratively with agencies,
landowners, communities and researchers to plan and implement projects to reduce the risks and impact of wildfires. HWMO Executive Director Elizabeth Pickett shows what residents and communities can do to prepare their families and protect their homes from future wildfire events.
