‘EWA BEACH, O‘AHU, HAWAI‘I – The Hoakalei Cultural Foundation organized a shoreline cleanup that drew over 120 volunteers to pick up debris from the west end of One‘ula Beach Park to White Plains.
Volunteers spent the morning cleaning the shoreline and learning about the area’s cultural and natural history, and enjoyed lunch and shave ice following their work.
“This shoreline cleanup followed our major cleanup of the area in September,” said Kepa Maly, executive director of the Hoakalei Cultural Foundation. “Through their efforts, our volunteers have seen the beauty of the Hoakalei shoreline blossom.”
The Hoakalei Cultural Foundation was established in 2006 to ensure good stewardship of the land and heritage of the ‘Ewa Plain. Its vision is to enable future generations to understand, value and respect the spirit, natural resources and heritage of the Ewa Plain and most importantly, to use it to guide their lives.
