HAWAII ISLAND PALM SOCIETY (H.I.P.S.)
The Hawaii Island Palm Society (H.I.P.S) is a great group of people who simply love palms and who strive to promote their use in private gardens and the general landscape. It is also their goal to perpetuate rare and endangered palms worldwide, through the sharing of seeds and plants. Our volunteer organization is an affiliate of the International Palm Society and is dedicated to community outreach and education. H.I.P.S. WEBSITE & MEMBERSHIP

PALMS OF NEW GUINEA
By Dr. Bill Baker
Recently, H.I.P.S. Members had the privilege and pleasure to listen and learn from a real “palm pioneer.” Dr. Bill Baker, from Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, is not only a well known botanist and palm expert, but also a fun and enjoyable person to meet and listen to. One of his ongoing projects is explained and updated in this educational presentation given recently at another great H.I.P.S. meeting at the University of Hawaii in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Thank you H.I.P.S. and Bill Baker for allowing the “filming” and sharing of this for all Palm Enthusiasts worldwide.
