Ridge to Reef Rendezvous 2016

Join the Ridge to Reef Rendezvous on Saturday, August 6th, at Kahekili Beach Park (Old Airport Beach) in North Kāʻanapali. This fun family-friendly event is free and open to the public, and will be held from 9 am to noon. Arrive early to receive a free tshirt, plus other giveaways from conservation partners. This annual event marks the 7th year since the establishment of the Kahekili Herbivore Fisheries Management Area (KHFMA), and through the years has expanded to focus more broadly on watershed-scale conservation themes, the things that any Maui resident can do to help our coral reefs and fisheries, from both land and the ocean, mauka to makai.
