SYMPHONY OF THE HAWAIIAN BIRDS

KAUAI EDITION

 


The Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds will be performed on Kaua‘i by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Wind Ensemble in February of 2020! Any grades 4-12 class (or home school) is welcome to attend the FREE school concert and there is also a free public concert!

The Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds is a place-based interdisciplinary program that brings together science, music, art, dance, and education to tell the story of our endangered Hawaiian forest birds. Featuring original compositions, animations, artworks, and lesson plans for teachers and students, the Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds has already been performed for over 10,000 people on O‘ahu. 

Now partnering with the Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Wind Ensemble will be performing this special Symphony on Kaua‘i for the first time.

​Kealia Boardwalk Tours

 

Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge

The tour is located at the Kealia Coastal Boardwalk and Viewing Area on North Kihei Road (south side of North Kihei Road, Route 31). You can only enter the small parking lot driving eastbound from Maʻalaea or West Maui. From Kihei or South Maui, you will need to pass the boardwalk and come back from the other direction.

This is an informational tour explaining the purpose of the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, why it exists and what birds and other wildlife are benefitting from its protection. Bring comfortable shoes, water, sunscreen, binoculars, cameras and lots of curiosity for an exhilarating and informative walk among Maui’s wildlife!

Meet at the boardwalk parking lot. This is an easy hike on the boardwalk through the refuge area. Please note that there are no restrooms at this location. There is limited parking in the parking lot, but additional parking is located along the highway.

Tours are available upon request.
