3/26/17 #kihei    In addition to our own general membership meetings open to the public for no charge – were you there on Tuesday evening? – there are often others out there, not connected to us, offering free public meetings. We try to insure our members & others are aware. Here are a few:

Thursday, March 30, at the Whale Sanctuary ,  (HIHWNMS) at 726 SKR attorney Dan Galpern will address climate change from a legal perspective at 6:30 PM. Based in Eugene, Oregon, the environmental attorney has undertaken cases defending the environment using the Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act. In spite of good laws, at times large powerful entities violate them for selfish and greedy motives 870-2818. 



Over in Maalaea (yes , that is our district too) on Thursday at 6:00 PM (doors open at 5:30) NOAA’s Randy Kosaki addresses deep coral reef research at the Papahanamokuakea Monument in a “sea talk” at the Maui Ocean Center (MOC). Best to call and make a reservation here at 270-7075.

Then we switch gears, as in bicycle gears, on Saturday morning at 9:00 AM in front of South Maui Bicycles in the Island Surf Building across from Kalama Park, as the Maui Bicycle League (MBL) offers a free bike maintenance class for everyone. Like KCA, MBL is a membership organization, but this is open to non members as well.

No Foolin! A FREE class on April 1, 2017.
Come join us for a FREE Bike Maintenance Class!

Pacific Disaster Center (PDC Global) is an applied research center managed by the University of Hawaii that supports the most demanding governmental and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) worldwide in helping to create a safer, more disaster resilient world. For more than 25 years, we’ve helped our partners enhance disaster management capacity, save lives, and reduce disaster losses through the application of our advanced tools and technologies, evidence-based research, and analytical information.

As always, we will be collecting donations for the MAUI FOOD BANK.  They can stretch a dollar like no one else so checks sealed in envelopes are also welcome.
