Aloha kakou,

Join us this Saturday at Ulupo Heiau to malama this wahi pana (sacred
place). At 8:30 am we will begin our Oli Kahea and have an orientation to
this mapele heiau. For those who would like to work in the loi kalo with
Hanaloa Helela may do so while the rest will work with Doc Burrows in the
loi wetland bird habitat. Wear tabis or footwear when working in the loi and
shoes in the land areas. We will be cutting back the hau and bamboo,
weeding in the auwai, weed whacking in the marsh and digging out the peat
layers. Bring a cutting or digging tool, water bottles and a snack. Wear
shorts or long pants, gloves, hat and use sun screen.

We will be pau by 12:00 pm, perhaps tired, wet and dirty but you will be
thinking throughout the week on what you have done to malama this sacred
place. Call 263-8008 or email to register for this malama
