Kaha Native Plant Garden: This project is a living example of how individual homeowners can help improve the local environment through the use of native vegetation and xeriscape gardens. The project replaced grass and invasive species along 150 yards of stream bank with native Hawaiian plants which can be used for soil stabilization, biofiltration and water conservation. Visitors can walk the garden pathways to see how plantings might appear in their own backyard. Volunteers will be involved in clearing invasive plant species from the area using small hand tools and hand pulling small weeds as we work to open and create areas to outplant native species.
