FREE WEBINAR: Arboriculture and Food Security in Hawaii 11-10-20 at 5 pm

Please join this FREE webinar to learn about Hawaiian culture in relation to arboriculture and food

Date: Tuesday, November 11, 2020 from 5-6 pm

Eligible for 1 Arborist (ISA) and LICT Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Abstract: Although much of the emphasis of Hawaiian agriculture focuses on herbs and shrubs, arboriculture played a
substantial roles in Hawaiian production systems, as they did throughout Polynesia. The use of trees in agriculture varied,
and this presentation will explore the general ecology, structure, and form of traditional arboriculture systems as it relates to
food resilience of the Hawaiian archipelago. We discuss the historical and contemporary roles of arboriculture in Hawai’i’s
food systems, as well as emerging organizations and opportunities for the application of trees for food resilience and security.

Dr. Lincoln is an Associate Researcher at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, where he runs the highly interdisciplinary
Indigenous Cropping Systems laboratory. He has, and continues to, research a broad spectrum of areas, including forest
ecology and management, restoration ecology, archaeology, personal values and sense of place, ecosystem services, and
terrestrial biogeochemistry within both natural and human dominated systems (i.e. agriculture). His primary focus, however,
is on indigenous cropping systems and their interaction with human societies in both the past and the present.

Webinar Tree Care for Birds and Wildlife

Conference Description: (4.5 CEUs)

August 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am

Tree Care for Birds is hosting an online workshop on the Wildlife Best Management Practices. Arborists have a unique connection with nature and wildlife in the urban forest. This workshop will focus on the best practices to act responsibly around wildlife and to navigate wildlife laws in Arizona, California, Nevada and Hawaii. The workshop will cover topics like: laws regulating wildlife, when and where are you most likely to encounter nesting birds, practices to minimize impacts to nesting birds during tree care, and managing wildlife habitat through urban forestry. We are offering this workshop across three weeks, and we will have different sessions for the different states.

Participants should plan to attend a webinar each week, take a quiz after each session and complete at least one homework assignment. If you don’t work in a western state, you are welcome to join us anyways. Some of the information will be broadly applicable to different areas.
