July 11, 2012, meeting re: organizing volunteer effort to combat illegal dumping in Paakea Road area.

Ka Wai Ola O Waianae is looking for volunteers for their efforts to combat illegal dumping and clean up our streams.

People’s Path: Volunteers who are willing to water the plants at the “Sea Country” end of the pathway (across Kaukama Rd.). They need to bring their own water and watering containers. (Note: Once the plants are established, they should be able to survive on their own without being watered.) They need to be self-motivated, able to work without supervision. The best option is for various groups to “adopt” portions of the pathway to help beautify and maintain it. Please call 696-4677 or email maileshimabukuro@yahoo.com if you want to help and spread the word!
