Students deliver talk
The Bishop Museum's Kupuna Lecture Series will highlight the work of students from Kanu O Ka 'Aina Public Charter School on the Big Island and their teachers, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Led by kumu Nalei Kahakalau, 12 Kanu students will present "Ho'ola Ka Wai 'O Waipi'o" ("To Restore the Water's (life) of Waipi'o)."
The students have been researchers in the museum's Stream Restoration Project involving the twin waterfalls of Hi'ilawe. It is the first-ever study of an effort to restore a Hawaiian stream to its natural flow.
The students spend one week, two to four times during the school quarter in the valley, working with Bishop Museum scientists to measure stream flow and collect data on native and alien species.
