We are proudly announcing the Fall 2012 Ocean Awareness Training on Oahu! This will be the *10th* session offered on Oahu - our first big anniversary that was made possible by the continuous support and commitment from all of you! We are very fortunate to have such a great pool of speakers who share their knowledge and expertise with the participants, and our local partner organizations who connect the classroom training sessions with hands-on field experiences.
Please help us spread the word - a flyer of the training is attached to this email. You can also point interested parties to our website: http://oceanawarehawaii.org.
Classroom sessions will be held on Thursdays, October 25, November 1 and 8 from 6:00-9:00pm, and on Saturday, November 3 from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Sessions will be held at the NOAA Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary's conference room in Hawaii Kai (6600 Kalanianaole Hwy, Suite 301) and one special session will be hosted by the Waikiki Aquarium on November 8.
If your organization would be able to offer a field project throughout the months of November and December, please let us know. Field projects should be a minimum of 3 hours and can be offered during the week or on weekends - whatever works best for your organization! If you could please let us know by October 15 whether your organization could host a field project, it would be greatly appreciated.
In addition, we also held a tentative timeslot for an Open House on November 8 at 7:30pm, where you could share information about your organization, volunteer opportunities, etc. with participants. Please let us know by October 8 if your organization would be interested in having a booth at the Open House. If we receive less than five rsvp's we will cancel the Open House.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Fiona Langenberger (either reply to this email or call 808-397-2651 ext 256).
Mahalo nui loa!
