Brown Bag #29: Regional Albizia Eradication in Upper Waiawa (John Carl Watson, KMWP)

Posted on Jan 2, 2020 in brownbag, slider

John-Carl Watson, manager of the Koolau Mountains Watershed Partnership, shares KMWP’s work to remove albizia from the mauka areas of an important watershed on Oahu. It took albizia 100 years to reach the upper part of this watershed, and is scheduled to take 4 years for KMWP to remove it. As John-Carl puts it, that provides hope.
