Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve will be open until 10 tonight for swim, snorkel, dive or walk along the shoreline under the moonlight as part of a special city program.

There will be no entrance or parking charges during the evening hours starting from 6 p.m., the time the bay normally closes.

The evening is the first in a series of free after-hour programs sponsored by the University of Hawaii Sea Grant program and the Friends of Hanauma Bay.

Upcoming events include:

>> Tuesday: The film "Hawaii Underwater" by Lew Trusty will show at the education center at 6:30 p.m. Trusty will be on hand to discuss the film and Hawaii's reefs.

>> Thursday: University of Hawaii oceanography professor Richard Grigg will give a talk on the history of the Hawaiian Archipelago and its coral reefs at the education center at 6:30 p.m.
