This week, DOFAW outreach staff hosted a field trip to Kaena Point for a group of seventh grade students from Oahu. For many of the students, this was their first time to the Natural Area Reserve at the Northwestern tip of Oahu. It was an exciting day!
The trip coincided with some really big surf on the North Shore.
The Kaena Point Ambassedor shared a cultural lesson at a cove while we took a rest and rehydrated for the second half of the hike.
Once the group reached the Natural Area Reserve boundary, students began to see adult albatross flying overhead and native plants growing along the path.
While visiting the NAR, students were able to observe:
Can you see the seals in the above photo?
