Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park in Hawaiʻi is an ideal place to learn about the interactions between groundwater and surface water. We have developed a self-guided walk that teaches you about why freshwater is such a precious resource. The guide is suitable for 4th through 12th grade students, home schoolers, and life long learners. The park has a classroom set of booklets for loan, or they can be purchased at the visitor center. Teachers can extend the learning by borrowing the Electrical Conductivity Backpack that allows your students to measure the salinity of the different types of water found along the walk.
