Ahahui Malama i ka Lokahi and the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club will begin their Fall Kawainui Marsh Educational Series, Saturday Sept. 4, 2010 with an introductory natural and cultural history tour of Kawainui Marsh. It will include possible interpretive sites around Kawainui Marsh.

Travel back in time when Kawainui Marsh and Kaelepulu Pond (Enchanted Lake) were ocean bays and the first Polynesians came to the shores of the ancient Kawainui Lagoon, constructed their heiau, (sacred temples), fishpond and taro terraces. Rick “Ka’imi” Scudder, geographer will lead participants on a driving/walking tour from Ulupo Heiau to Na Pohaku o Hauwahine and the Kawainui Estuary at Kawainui Park. He will explain how these sites were used in ancient and historic periods, and present plans by community volunteers, State and Federal agencies to restore the health of the natural and cultural ecosystems of the marsh and the Kailua Ahupua’a.

The tour will start at 8:30 am and be completed by 12:00 pm. A donation of $10 is requested. Contact Kaimi Scudder at 593-0112 or reply to register and receive more information and registration.
