The University of Hawai'i O'ahu Urban Garden Center is now the permanent home for two insect specimen research learning cabinets. The Dana Anne Yee Foundation and Scenic Hawai'i, Inc. co-sponsored this successful Dedication. It was highlighted by the informative presentation by expert Entomologist William D. Perreira. He shared his knowledge of the importance of the Early detection of invasive insect pest species.
The O'ahu Nursery Growers Association, Scenic Hawai'i, Landscape Association of Hawai'i, and Karen Li helped to donate the insect cabinets that are an instrumental learning tool for the Kūpuna, Keiki, and the entire community.
The Dana Anne Yee Foundation will continue to help to Keep Hawaii Green.
