Nominations are now being accepted to honor invasive species prevention efforts within Maui County. The Mālama I Ka ‘Āina Award is presented annually to a landscaper, plant provider (retail and wholesale nurseries and garden shops), or commercial/agricultural property owner/manager to recognize their efforts to keep invasive species out of Maui County.
The winner will be announced Saturday, June 16th at the Maui Association of Landscape Professionals’ Maui Garden and Landscape Expo at the Maui Mall. The winner will receive a plaque, a glass sculpture by artist Jupiter Nielsen, a one-year free membership with the Maui Association of Landscape Professionals and local media recognition.
Applicants are requested to explain how the nominee’s activities or decisions have contributed to keeping Maui free from invasive species. Examples include: not selling or using invasive plants; steps taken to learn about invasives; and efforts to reduce use of invasive species by other customers.
Applications are due by Friday, June 1st, 2018 and are available here: 2018 Malama i ka `Aina Award On-line Application
You may submit completed nominations via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to 573-6475, or mail to MISC at P.O. Box 983, Makawao, HI 96768. There is no fee to apply. Self-nominations are welcome. For more information, call 573-MISC (6472), or e-mail email@example.com.
Past Mālama i ka ʻĀina Award recipients were recognized for meaningful steps taken to prevent the spread of invasive species, including incorporating codes-of-conduct in business practices, educating the public and clients about invasive species, and encouraging the use of native species in landscape design. Actions of award recipients are steps in the right direction!
