Plant nursery service, 1 day, at Haleakala National Park summit area
The Friends of Haleakala National Park are offering a new one-day service activity at the park’s plant nursery in the Haleakala summit district on the first Tuesday of each month. The next date will be April 2.
Volunteers will help park horticulturist Michelle Osgood with jobs involving caring for the rare, endemic plants being propagated, such as transplanting, weeding, cleaning and preparing seeds for storage or planting, and some pot washing. The park recycles pots which have to be carefully cleaned to prevent the spread of plant diseases. There may sometimes be some out planting, but most of the service work is done inside, and participants can drive up to the location of the work.
Those interested should call Mary at 572-1584 for a reservation and to arrange a carpool which will be from Pukalani up to the park at 8:00 am on the 2nd.
Participants should bring water, lunch and snacks, and their own gloves if desired. The park will provide other tools. Wear sturdy shoes, and in case of out planting work, bring a hat and sunscreen.
Time: 8:00 am to 1:00 pm

Stretching across east Maui, Haleakala National Park is home to Haleakala Crater, an active, but not currently erupting volcano, and Maui's highest peak. Rising over 10,000 feet above sea level, Haleakala's graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakala means "House of the Sun" in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun itself from its summit to slow the sun's journey across the skies.
