As a late reminder, this weekend (Nov. 15-16) is the time when we give back a little bit of hana to the ‘Aina, especially to our ‘Āinakumuwai Hulē‘ia, for all the benefits we receive. Please join our volunteers from Kapaa HS and KCC in freeing Niumalu from invasive red mangrove. Let this be our Thanksgiving.
We will be working in wet and muddy condtions, so please wear boots or tabis and use sunscreen and sunglasses. A reusable water bottle will also help.
Although last month’s regular work weekend was cancelled due to the tropical storm threat, we still made good progress on other days thanks to the help of DOE teachers and members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hawaii – Lihue Clubhouse. Special mahalo to Sabra Kauka and Asaka Herman for initiating and coordinating the help.
