Our Progress

What we’ve accomplished so far…

Phase I Project- Kahala-side Lookout. After 7 years of grassroots activism, a lush grass lawn is holding sandy soil, preventing further erosion from wind and rain runoff. Invasive plants like kiawe are replaced by native trees and flowers. The area is completely restored for better use of land.

NOW : APRIL 2022
Current Focus…

We are restoring the area by Kuilei Cliffs Beach Park access and current plan is to:   

  • Remove weeds and invasive plants (i.e., Kiawe and Koa Haole) and replace by planting native trees (i.e., Milo trees, Kuo trees) and grass roots 
  • Clear illegal campsites and clean up illegal campers/homeless trash and clean up illegal campers / homeless trash (e.g., tents, makeshift structures, needles, debris)
  • Restore the water irrigation system to help our native plants and grass 
  • Redirect and reclaim shower runoff water for the native plants and grass 

This will help us purchase…

Donation welcome
  • Irrigation system:  sprinkler heads, water pipes, and irrigation system accessories
  • Power tools: weed trimmer, string trimmer lines, hedge trimmer, reciprocating saws, and blowers
  • Landscaping materials: pickaxes, rakes, shovels, gloves, safety goggles, earplugs, pull saw, gas
  • Native plants and vegetations: Kou, Milo, Native hibiscus, and Ilima
  • Meals and beverages for our volunteers
