“The most abundant tree in Hawaii’s native forest is the ‘ōhi‘a lehua, a tree critical to providing the water we drink, keeping our ocean reefs clean, and to the native Hawaiian culture,” says Ambyr U. Mokiao-Lee, Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death (ROD) Statewide Outreach Coordinator.
“For these reasons and more, ‘ōhi‘a will be celebrated in a week-long virtual event called ʻŌhiʻa Love Fest. We hope you can join us for a fun-filled week in Hawai‘i Nei!”
Running Nov. 16-21, the fest will treat ‘Ōhi‘a lovers of all ages to an entertaining and educational mix of workshops, videos, arts, crafts, and cultural sharing of ʻōhiʻa. Everything is free, but please note that some activities require advance registration.
