So many of us living on or visiting the Kohala Coast are in awe of the constant, yet ever changing beauty. We want to do our part to protect and keep our surroundings beautiful. That’s why “Keep Puako Beautiful” and “Hawaii Wildlife Fund” will team up with Keep Hawaii Beautiful, Recycle Hawaii, Hawaii State Parks, and Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail to host a shoreline hiking clean-up in honor of National Trails Day.
Volunteers from a previous event included a group of motivated keiki (kids) from N. Kohala
- Date: June 15, 2013, Saturday
- Time: 7:00 AM
- Meeting Place: Beach 67, to clean a portion of the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail from Kanekanaka Pt. to Hapuna Pt.
- Sign up now for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Help Keep The Kohala Coast a Beautiful Place to Live and Visit
Organizers are still looking for volunteers to be on foot and in vehicles to pick up litter on the trail and connector roads, to document findings, load into transport vehicles, and dispose of opala (trash) at the Puako Transfer Station. A goal for this event is that volunteers will try to recycle as much trash as they can at the Puako Transfer Station.
Opala – Hawaiian word meaning trash/rubbish; i.e. material waste
