How to Help


In our on-going work to clear the land of red mangrove from the Huleia, we can always use more helping hands. While the mangrove trees are being cut down by a small group of skilled Menehune, much work remains to stack the debris of roots and branches and transport them to the chipper. When the land is clear, we will also need much help to replant the area with native vegetation. If you can lend a hand, our work will go faster and we will be able to meet our current goal of clearing red mangrove and other invasive vegetation from around the Alakoko Fishpond in two years.
