April is Earth Month! At HOK, we are honored to work alongside the families, service organizations, students and community members coming to participate in environmental programs to make sure we have healthy watersheds, clean streams, and a next generation of caretakers. We also strive to create programs and opportunities that welcome and engage the "eco-first-timer" and hopefully spark an interest in them to continue to connect with the environments around them. This month is full of eco-focused activities and family friendly events that help to educate us all about the environments around us and ways that we can all participate in conservation and activism.
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.
