27 Jan Volunteers at Diamond Head for MLK Day
On behalf of Kupu and the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), we would like to say mahalo to all of the volunteers who came out and made a difference during our 9th annual MLK Day of Service at Diamond Head State Monument! Together we were able to remove the overgrown vegetation and invasive plant species from more than six acres while planting over 300 native plants along the Fort Ruger Pathway. It was a huge task, and all of the hard earned perspiration and teamwork from the hundreds of volunteers helped us to achieve so much in such a short time for our State Parks. We hope that the general public can enjoy this beautiful site even more now, knowing that everyone of our volunteers personally contributed to this area.
Our collective volunteer efforts were even captured by local news stations. Check out some of the news coverage here.
We would like to share this short video and some photos from the day.
Please continue to keep an eye out for other upcoming Kupu community service projects. As always, we warmly welcome you, your family, friends and co-workers to volunteer with us at incredible (and sometimes inaccessible) sites across the island.
