I came across a flyer for this event so I thought I'd post it and share it with all of you. It looks very interesting - I definitely plan to go.
July is Hawai'i Conservation Month - this event is open to everyone including: private and public entities, non-profit organizations, businesses, community groups and each and every one of you! :)
I get off work at 5 usually, I'll hop on the bus and head straight to the convention center. If you reach before me, post a comment to let me know and vice versa - as soon as I get there, I'll post that I'm there and where I can be found. Let's go, get excited and get involved in the Hawai'i Conservation effort. :)
