First and foremost I would like to say a BIG MAHALO to everyone who came out this past Saturday to support HURT and the Makiki Stream Cleanup effort! We must have had about 30 volunteers come out to participate in clearing and creating an access and pathway near the Makiki stream for the Halau Ku Mana public charter school.
The kumu of the school teach the kids to live and learn from the land using the traditional Hawaiian way. Clearing the stream of weeds and invasive plants will also allow the school to introduce native plants and trees back to that area.
Many of you who volunteered made good use of this opportunity to log in hours for the 2020 HURT100 trail work requirement. You all showed the spirit of what HURT represents; teamwork, camaraderie, and the willingness to help others. Everybody went above and beyond what we were asked to do and the school was very appreciative of your hard effort. It truly takes a village.
Here’s a short video of event and the results of your work.
Again, a BIG mahalo to you all!
Freddy, Jeff F. and Jeff H.
