“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” ~ William James
Excellent Experience in Saturday morning. The sky was blue and the sound of the ocean was my energy to save the nature. I made new friends, everybody was very nice, and everything moved smoothly. This was my volunteer experience when I joined Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea Community Planting Project. We installed the bamboo fence to protect the work area and attached the signs at Pupukea Beach Park. The atmosphere of this activity was friendly and I felt at home right away.
Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea is a volunteer-based North Shore non-profit. Its programs educate residents of Hawai’i and visitors to the Pūpūkea Marine Life Conservation District about the importance of this special area’s marine life and protected status. Mālama Pūpūkea Waimea Community Planting Project allows volunteers to remove invasive weeds, plant native Hawaiian coastal species and help to improve rapid erosion on the west bluff above Sharks Cove. The activity was not only to get some experience, but it was also an opportunity to meet locals and make friends.
