This Saturday, 27 August, Na Ala Hele is seeking volunteers to come out and help on a project called the Makiki Watershed Awareness Initiative or commonly known as Makiki WAI ("WAI" is Hawaiian for water).
What to expect: The new Makiki Aboretum Trail will be the focus of work. It will connect the lower parking area and NC - plans are to eventually close the road to foot traffic. Volunteers will install recycled plastic cribbing and help improve the trail. Families are welcome, but young children must be well supervised.
When/Where: Saturday, 27 August from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM. Meet at the Makiki Forestry Baseyard. Volunteers may park in the small lot behind the restrooms. Gate will be unlocked - please be sure to put the chain back onto the post after passing through.
Bring: Long shirt, pants, bug juice, water, lunch and shoes.
Hope some of you can come out to help!
