Classroom visits for Spring 2017
The Maui Invasive Species Committee offers classroom visits based on the Hoike o Haleakala Curriculum. Our offerings typically relate to invasive species topics and we will be highlighting the follow topics for the spring semester:
- Little Fire Ants: Learn more about the big impacts of this tiny pest. Your students can help to find small populations by testing their yards and learning more about how to identify the little fire ant.
- Oh Deer! The impacts and ethics of Axis deer on Maui.
