Celebrating 100 years of migratory bird conservation!
Come and join the celebration at a cocktail mixer and fundraiser where you can mingle with local biologists and learn about efforts to recover the ‘alae ‘ula, found only in Hawai‘i, and about the restaurant's link to this special bird and how they are supporting its conservation.
- Did you know the Mud Hen referred to in the restaurant’s name is an actual native Hawaiian bird, the ‘alae ‘ula, which is believed to have brought fire to Native Hawaiians?
- Did you know this bird is now endangered and can only be found on O‘ahu and Kaua‘i?
- Did you know this bird is part of this year’s centennial celebration of an important international Migratory Bird Treaty that helps protect it?
5:00 - 7:00 pm with a short presentation at 6:00 pm.
Complimentary pupus and a silent auction featuring dinner for two at TOWN, personal photography lessons, original artwork made for the event, a stay at a local B&B, a special behind the scenes tour at Bishop Museum, nature tours, and much more!
Get your Instagram thumbs ready, there will be a #MigrateToMudHen photo contest, with great prizes given out throughout the night.
Proceeds from the auction, as well as a portion of sales from a special cocktail featuring Koloa Rum, will go towards supporting on-the- ground actions to help protect the ‘alae ‘ula by Livable Hawaii Kai Hui and the Kilauea Point Natural History Association!
Mud Hen Water's regular food and beverage menu will be available throughout the event. See their selection here.
