Hui o Ko'olaupoko (HOK) and project partner Kama 'āina Kids are proud to announce a new estuary restoration project aimed at improving water quality and increasing habitat for native aquatic animal species by removing invasive plants and replanting native Hawaiian species along a portion of the He'eia Stream estuary.
We would like to invite you to attend a blessing for the project site on Tuesday March 31, 2015 at 3:30pm. The blessing will take place at He'eia State Park. Guests may park in the public parking area and proceed to the coastline on the southern side of the park via the asphalt path near the park's main entrance gate. After the blessing, attendees may join HOK staff for a short tour of the project area. The more adventurous attendees should wear attire appropriate to wade through water and mud. Read more about this project here and please feel free to contact HOK with any questions.
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.
