Join us at the Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village on Friday February 23rd from 10:00am-12:00pm. Spend the morning with staff from ʻImi Pono no ka ʻĀina as we explore the native plants that live along the Niaulani Forest Trail. This short 1/7 mile loop path is very accessible for those who might need to go at a little slower pace and offers great photo opportunities to use as inspiration for the fall exhibition.

A little more about Niʻaulani Forest...
“Dominated by towering native ‘ōhi‘a lehua (Metrosideros polymorpha) and koa (Acacia koa) trees, with an understory of tree ferns and a rich variety of other native plants, this 4-acre rain forest is a rare old-growth remnant within the Volcano Village area. The oldest of our trees— some more than 65 feet tall—are probably at least 200 years old. Also home to native birds, this montane tropical rainforest (110-120 inches of rain annually) grows in a bed of volcanic ash that last fell during the 18th century.”
