Before we launch ourselves into what is already shaping up to be a busy new year, we want to thank everyone that donated their time and support to HOK in 2018. The 2018 volunteer turn out was quite amazing, with almost 1,500 volunteers accumulating 4,200 hours of service at our restoration sites, over 2000 native plants were planted and propagated!
As 2019 unfolds we will be sharing some exciting news and new projects with you and we can not wait! To start off, we are very excited to be removing the last acre of invasive mangrove trees on State Park property at the He'eia Estuary Restoration Site! Soon, community members will be able to view the estuary, stream, and fishpond right from the bridge.
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.
