We are finally back with another Virtual Kahaukani Conversations. We hope everyone has been safe and healthy as we continue to navigate these crazy times. Join us as we talk plants and Mānoa Valley with artist and horticulturist David Shepard.
David’s presentation, “Mānoa Plants: A Changing Landscape,” will examine how the land use and plants in the Valley have changed rapidly in just a few generations and provide information on identifying and growing native plants.
