First Aid/Cpr/Aed Training By Chris Gilbert – 2 Year Certification

First-response situations often call for both quick thinking and instantaneous mastery of CPR, First-Aid, *AEDs and the skills associated with them. You never know when an emergency situation may strike, and so the only defense is proper preparation.

This knowledge is vital to members of our industry. It is a program that was requested by several of our members.

5.5 CEU's are available for ISA Certified Arborists.

Registration is limited. Please register early to guarantee a space by CLICKING HERE to download the registration brochure and application and follow payment instructions or, to pay by credit card, please use the appropriate payment buttons.

*An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.

MALP Event — Tour of the Bud Wagner Memorial Garden

Led by Anna Palomino

In the south end of Wailea, at Wailea Point, sits a gem of a garden filled with a tapestry of native plants. This is the native plant seawalk at Wailea Point, the Bud Wagner Memorial Garden.

When construction of Wailea Point began in the late 80’s, the decision was made to have the area along the coast of the property to be planted in native Hawaiian plants. At the time of planting, this garden had up to 70 species of native plants along the half-mile walkway, some of which were used for the first time here in a commercial setting. Over time, the range of plants has dropped and Wailea Point has been working to re-establish the diversity of the garden.

Anna Palomino owner of Ho’olawa Farm

Anna Palomino, the owner of Ho’olawa Farms, was contracted by Wailea Point to oversee the renovations of the garden. Ho’olawa Farms was one of the first native plant nurseries developed in Hawaii. She has supplied plants for many restorations including the Dept. of Transportation, Hookipa, and Kahoolawe and Haleakala National Park. Anna can give us insights on growing and establishing common and unusual plants in these sometimes difficult conditions. This includes working around the established colony of ‘ua’u kani, the wedge-tailed shearwater, who happily reside in the garden from April to October.

What to bring: Camera, Hat, Water
