Place-Based Learning Experience at Anna's Ranch

Teachers Shawna Fischer and Jeanne Hart (Kealakehe Elementary) at Anna's Ranch
Saturday, September 25 was a beautiful day in Waimea to kick off the Place-Based Learning course sponsored by the Lehua Writing Project. Participants met at Anna's Ranch and immersed themselves in the history of this place.

According to director Jeannine Hirtle, "Anna Lindsey ran that ranch with the help of only one ranch hand from 1945-1995! She brought amazing innovation to cattle ranching here on the Big Island through her intelligence, tenacity, and work ethic! Her legacy is inspiring!"

If you  were a participant yesterday, let us know how it went, and if you feel like you missed out on a great learning opportunity, contact Jeannine at to get more information on upcoming events.
