Our tools

Our Tools

  • GPS (Global positioning System)

  • Hula Hoop

  • String (for transect)

  • Digital Camera


Berry flats

Berry Flats

Why we Hiked Berry Flats?

  • To examine plant species

  • To cut down invasive species like Kahili Ginger

  • To learn about Native Plants and animals


The hike what we did on berry flats

The HikeWhat We Did on Berry Flats

  • We looked for Native Plants and animals

  • We cut down invasive plants

  • We learned about the plants and animals


Gps what is that

GPS?Whatis that?!

  • A GPS is an electronical device that tracts satellites and will;

  • Tell you where you are

  • And what the elevation is.


Here s some pictures

Here’s some pictures!


Transects

-Transects !-

  • A transect is an area of land that we surveyed.

  • This is how it works: you put a string down and you pick a spot to survey.


Even more pictures

Even MORE pictures !


Quadrants

Quadrants

  • A Quadrant is a section of land measured by a hula hoop.

  • We looked at the plants inside the quadrant and also looked up into the canopy.

Why this information is important

Why this information is important

1. This information is important because now people will know a lot about Koke’e nature and the wildlife.

2. This information is important to us because now my class and I know a lot about Koke’e and about the plants and animals.

3. This information is important to scientists because they can learn about the plants and wild life, transects, quadrants.


Data collection

Data collection

  • We collected data by taking pictures and writing down what was over a hula hoop that we threw to see which plant was there. We wrote down the plant and what percent of sky there was above the hula hoop, for instance, 73% was trees and 27% was sky.


Pictures pictures pictures

PICTURES, PICTURES, PICTURES!!


The forest

The Forest!


What we learned

What We Learned

  • There are invasive species like banana poka and strawberry guava that we should try to get rid of.

  • There are many native plants like the Ohia Lehua and Koa Tree.

  • We used a hula hoop (quadrant) , a GPS, and some rope to learn about the habitat.


What we learned continued

What We Learned (continued)

  • We learned to work together.

  • We learned about the plants and animals that live in Koke’e.


What if

What If?

  • What if we didn’t have this information?

  • We wouldn’t know anything about the nature in Koke’e, so we couldn’t help the native plants.

  • What if we didn’t pull Kahili Ginger on the trail?

  • It would take over the native plants and they would go extinct.


What if continued

What If (continued)

  • What if forest managers were able to use this information and what would they know?

  • They would know to be more aware of invasive species.

  • What if visitors had this information?

  • They would know not to kill native plants and animals.
