Turtle Bay Resort’s Canine Ambassador Pono wants to take you on one of his pawsome adventures!
Starting March 19, Pono will be going on hiking excursions with guests every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m.
“Pono loves being outdoors on the trails and I know he’s going to love sharing Turtle Bay with new friends every week,” said Pono’s mom and Turtle Bay’s Director of the Guidepost Alicia McCumbers.
Turtle Bay Resort is home to 100 acres of marsh surrounding the Arnold Palmer golf course and is a designated Supporting Habitat for various species of endangered Waterbirds:
Hawaiian Stilt, Hawaiian Coot, Hawaiian Moorhen, Hawaiian Duck, and now the Albatross.
These endangered birds are highly susceptible to human and predator disturbance so please admire them from a distance.

The 8th annual Makahiki Kuilima took place on January 12, with about 1,500 people in attendance. The event is an annual fundraiser for the Ke Kula ‘o S.M. Kamakau school. It is part of the school’s mission of community outreach to share the Hawaiian culture.
A highlight of the event is Hawaiian sledding or he'e holua, it is the only active sledding track anywhere in the islands.
“Makahiki Kuilima gives our students, and the entire school ohana, the opportunity to hear and speak Hawaiian outside of the school setting and to practice a living culture,” said event organizer Anne Stone.
The event also includes a Kukini Kuilima 5K run for all ages. About 100 people participated in the 3-mile trail race.
We talked story with Anne about the event, which shares the amazing Hawaiian culture with the community and visitors alike.
