Enjoy this grand virtual opening of Kaulana Manu (formerly Kīpuka 21), a family friendly interpretive trail in a pristine kīpuka (older, forested pockets spared from lava flows). A favorite of birders, this is a good spot to catch a glimpse of many of Hawaiʻi Island’s native forest birds. If you’re lucky, you’ll may see endangered Hawaiian birds like ʻakiapōlāʻau, ʻakepa, and ʻalawī. More info.
