KISC focuses largely on education and public outreach to raise awareness about the impact of invasive species on native ecosystems. We participate in many community events and are happy to arrange educational presentations and activities. KISC aims to engage with the community through interactive games for keiki, informational materials, and more.

Workshops and Presentations
KISC outreach staff is available for presentations and/or workshops for your organization, association, club, or business.
Our team can tailor a presentation to focus on invasive species that threaten your geographic area and/or where you and your team work. These presentations can be made to fit into various agendas and can range in length from 10 minutes to 2 hours.
Our Early Detection workshops, Bio-Sanitation workshops, and Seed Collecting workshops provide training to groups on proper invasive species identification, best management practices in your field, and the importance of protecting native ecosystems on our island. These workshops generally run 45 – 90 minutes long.
The KISC outreach team is available to all public, private, and charter schools. We have presentations and activities for all ages. KISC Outreach staff can visit classrooms and/or meet in the field to provide students with hands-on learning activities for grades K-12. KISC also offers citizen science opportunities, and information about the threats invasive species have on Kauaʻi’s forests, farms, and backyards. Our team is happy to help blend the KISC message into your lesson plan.
