‘Ōhi‘a Seed Conservation Workshops
These workshops are part of a series in the Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death Seed Banking Initiative, which aims to expand capacity for collection and banking of ʻōhiʻa seeds across all islands in response to the ROD crisis. It is free and open to anyone who wants to learn how to properly collect, handle, and process ʻōhiʻa seeds, without doing harm to trees or forests, using methods that protect seed viability and ensure conservation value for future restoration.
Registration is required – Sign up by island/location below
Most workshops have two half-day options, 9:00am-12:00pm or 1:30pm-4:30pm
