Insects like butterflies, bees and lady bugs help our plants flourish in the tough xeric habitat. Join us in learning more about these important garden friends. We’ll spend time adventuring in the garden & crafting a bright pōhaku pal to take home. Come dressed for the adventure - you’ll probably get dirt & paint on your clothes – but that’s part of the fun! We recommend bringing snacks/light lunch and drinks to fuel your creativity.


Advanced registration is required. Registration begins on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, and closes at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, 2020, or when all spaces are filled. Call (808) 748-5315 or email workshops@hbws.org to register. BWS security and workshop registration requires submittal of participant’s full name, home address, phone number, and email address where applicable.
