May 2013 marks an exciting milestone for Hui o Ko'olaupoko, we reached 20,000 hours of volunteer service donated to preserving, restoring and protecting the mauka and makai areas of Ko'olaupoko!
What does 20,000 hours mean? In the context of HOK, a lot!
To HOK 20,000 hours of volunteer service is the equivalent of:
Mahalo to all of the families, groups and individuals who have dedicated their time to helping HOK. You are greatly appreciated.
The mission of Hui o Ko`olaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the `aina: mauka to makai. This is done in partnership with stakeholders including interested citizens, non-governmental organizations, government, educational institutions and businesses while using and focusing on sound ecological principles, community input, and cultural heritage.
