Location: Windward Community College: Hale Kuhina, Room 115

In partnership with Paepae O Heʻeia, Papahana Kuaola, Kakoʻo ʻOiwi, The Pacific Islands Climate Science Center, The Nature Conservancy, NOAA and HCA, a group of scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey came to Heʻeia last October to collect coastal topographic and bathymetric data to assist with the understanding and management of the ahupuaʻa. Join Hawaiʻi Conservation Alliance for pupu and to talk story about what was found in Heʻeia! Learn how the data collected can help local organizations better manage our lands and how this field experience in Hawaiʻi has informed the USGSʻs survey work in other US-associated Pacific Islands.
