Learn about Hawaii’s sea life at the Education Center Alcove of the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, about one hour from the Ko Olina Beach Villas. All seminars are free and begin at 3 p.m. Please arrive by 2:45 p.m.
October 9, 2016:“60° North: A Monk Seal Biologist’s Journey to Study Arctic Ice Seals,” will be led by Charles Littnan of the NOAA Monk Seal Research Program.

There is a $1 parking fee per vehicle.
