Ecology & Evolution Field Trip
Saturday, November 2, 9:30am to 5:30pm
On this field trip we will visit one of the last remaining wetland areas on O’ahu, Pearl Harbor National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is vital to endangered wildlife and plants and we will help survey the unique small tidal pools and assist in protecting endangered plants in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff. We will then visit Bishop Museum to enjoy a provided lunch and a behind-the-scenes tour from the collections staff. Our field trip will end with time for participants to visit the museum on their own before returning to the convention center.
