We are excited to announce that the Kōkeʻe Resource Conservation Programs (KRCP) is hosting itʻs 3rd Annual Hoʻomaluō Fundraiser on January 20 from 5p-9p at the Kekaha Harbor House. There will be ʻono food, live entertainment, door prizes, and a silent auction. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Children 10 and younger are free. Tickets are limited so get them before they sell out. Tickets can be purchased online at www.krcp.org, in Lihue at Aloha Aina Juice Cafe and in Hanapepe at MCS Grill. Aloha Aina and MCS Grill will accept cash only. All proceeds raised will support our volunteer and intern programs.
Since being founded in 1998, KRCP has worked with 31,970 volunteers who have contributed 173,056 hours of volunteer service assisting KRCP staff with the removal over 12.4 million invasive weeds covering over 12,000 acres of Kauaʻi’s diverse native Hawaiian forest ecosystems that supports rare and unique plants and animals with many being found only on Kauaʻi. Over 100 conservation interns have come through our internship program with many now having successful careers in conservation here on Kauaʻi, through out the state of Hawaiʻi, US Continent and internationally. Without the volunteer and intern programs, KRCP would not be able to accomplish our goals each year. We are so grateful for their generosity and hard work.
