Ocean Aware Hawaii, a coalition of marine conservation organizations, will offer its inaugural Ocean Awareness Training on Hawai‘i in Kailua-Kona in early December. The course, which includes three classroom sessions and a three-hour field project, will provide multi-disciplinary knowledge of Hawai‘i’s unique marine environment from instructors including university scientists, government agency staff environmental educators and conservation practitioners. In place of tuition, the organization is collecting a “suggested donation” of $10.
Participants will learn about current ocean conservation efforts and opportunities to get involved. The program is open to the public – no prior experience is required–but those who participate will be expected to attend the full course.
Classes will be held at West Hawai’i Civic Center in Kailua-Kona on Friday, December 5, Thursday, December 11 and Monday, December 15, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
