Located on Oahu’s windward coast lies He’eia State Park fronting Kane’ohe Bay which contains the island’s only barrier reef. The bay is fed by an estuary where Invasive plants have found their way in, choking natural irrigation routes and making it nearly impassable for native fish like the ‘o’opu.
Help us clear the stream and bring back plants that aid in control of erosion and filter stormwater runoff. Across from the estuary is an ancient Hawaiian fishpond, which by special agreement, allows our volunteers a rare chance to walk upon its walls to see a sustainable form of aqua-culture unique to this part of the world. With your contributions, we will further our mission to bring the area back from what would otherwise be irreparable.
