We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! If shopping is on your mind, we invite you to check out our local gift guide. Otherwise, we share some ideas to Opt Outside on this Black Friday as well as some other ideas for the rest of the weekend.

Find Fungi

Take time on your next forest walk to examine all the life around you. Just under a log or rock you may discover a surprise!

Fly a kite

Kids love the thrill of seeing their kite fly in the air. Take your kite to the park or an open field and let the kids run loose.

Play in the sand

Bring a real shovel, buckets, and sand toys for some fun at the beach. Build a castle, make sand pies, or bury mom in the sand. 

Explore the Tidepools

Hop from pool to pool and examine the rocks closely for sea life. Crabs, sea cucumbers, and all kinds of fish await you.

Read a book under a tree

Did you know the public libraries in Hawaii are open again for visits? Grab a book and find your favorite tree for a relaxing day.
