On Feb. 5, Honokaa High School agriculture students visited Kaupulehu Dryland Forest in Kona. At the site, the group learned that only 10 percent of the Hawaiian Dry Forest in our state remains. During their visit, students helped remove invasive weeds in an out planting area and also spread native Hawaiian seeds.
