Not to be mere observers of what was happening to the Puali Wetland, the 7th Graders of Island School got down and dirty in cleaning up the place. They filled up a large roll-off bin with debris of dry grass, sticks, coconuts, coconut frawns, muddy old mangrove branches. They pulled out all the still surviving baby mangrove and Indian fleabane. They collected trash cans of man-made rubbish. They took good care of live fish, toads and spiders. They set a high standard and created a legend for what kids can do when they care about their environment. Mahalo Island School 7th Graders.
