April 24, 2014

Endangered wildlife biologist Cathleen Bailey shows teachers an old nene nest at Haleakala National Park on Tuesday, Earth Day. The park hosted 31 teachers for the full-day science, technology, engineering and math workshop, a collaboration between the state Department of Education and the park. The objective of the collaboration was to explore different methods of teaching STEM concepts to children in both classroom and outdoor settings. Teachers learned from park biologists about nene population monitoring techniques, feral animal management and how park managers maintain fence lines. They also demonstrated techniques for conserving rare plants through seed propagation. Funding for transportation, lunch and workshop supplies was provided by the Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association, a nonprofit partner of Haleakala National Park.
