Waimea Valley

Waimea Valley Road, Haleiwa

Sunday, October 14, 2018, 10:00 am

Join David Orr, Plant Collections Specialist, on a tour/hike of Waimea Valley. This botanical treasure features
over 5,000 different taxa growing here and Oahuís famous waterfall. Our event begins with a walking tour of the
lower gardens.David will drive a long golf cart with 5 seats for those who canít walk. Then, the walkers can
accompany him on a half-mile hike to the waterfall. The others can take the ($10 roundtrip) tram to the waterfall.
Up there, David will have another long golf cart waiting so we can do another group tour. Those of you who attended
our 2013 annual meeting at Waimea Valley will remember what a great guide David was. Since then, the garden has
a new Lei Garden with many flowers not commonly used in lei making. The newest garden is called the 4H (the History of
Hibiscus Hybridization in Hawaii) and it displays the wild Hawaiian, Fijian and Indian Ocean ancestors of the earliest
hybrids created in Hawaii. The snack bar is open for lunch.

Our tour fees ($25 for FHBG Members and $30 for Non-members) includes price of admission to the gardens.
