We have made great progress in clearing mangrove and other weeds from the space between the Pū‘ali Stream and the Niumalu Beach Park. Come down and check it out. As Buddy Keala put it, at high tide the site looks like “it wants to become a loko i‘a” (fish pond). And at low tide last week, an ‘auku‘u (black crowned night heron) was seen exploring the area.
Not wanting to lose any of this good momentum by leaving the Pū‘ali site unattended for too long, we have added another public workday. We invite all in our community, especially those in the Niumalu neighborhood, to join us on June 22 for another day of working toward a mangrove-free Pū‘ali. Sign in at 8:30 AM. Lunch will be provided. Mahalo.
