Conservation awareness training set at UHMC

By Staff | May 5, 2016

KAHULUI – Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Training will be offered at the University of Hawaii Maui College on Friday, May 13, at 9 a.m.

Environmental interpretation plays a significant role in nature-based tourism and is mutually beneficial to tour operators, visitors, conservation groups, and the nature-based tourism economy.

The goal of the training is to educate tour operators and guides about native ecosystems and species found in Hawaii, and the projects that are helping conserve them.

Presentations about conservation and the natural environment will be given by representatives from the Maui Invasive Species Committee, East Maui Watershed Partnership, and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project.

Training is held at the CHTAR Community Service Building at UHMC.

Training is free; tour operators and guides are encouraged to attend. Reserve a spot at miscpr@hawaii.edu.
