The University of Hawaii at Manoa is banking on creating a new generation of environmental stewards by opening up their Urban Garden Center to hundreds of school kids on Friday.
It was all part of this year's Oahu Agriculture and Environmental Awareness Day.
For 600 public and private elementary school students, the center the classroom for the day.
Students and teachers were taking part in everything from animal science, to nutrition and wellness, to the importance on the protection against invasive species on agriculture.
The public is invited to attend Oahu Agriculture and Environmental Awareness Day on Sat., March 9.
