Hanalei Watershed Hui is coordinating a community trail maintenance day on Saturday. Friends, families, student groups, and the general public are invited to help clear and clean up Hanalei’s Okolehao Trail.
Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at the Okolehao trailhead parking lot (one mile up the Hanalei River on Ohiki Road). HWH’s chief scientist Dr. Carl Berg and hydrologist/engineer Matt Rosener will discuss the importance trail restoration plays in protecting precious watershed resources.
The morning’s efforts will include activities such as removing non-native plants, installing erosion control fabrics, installing water bars, and planting native plants and ground cover. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, clippers, loppers and other gardening tools.
Organizers said the event will be an exciting opportunity to join as a community to help protect and preserve the quality of the local watershed.
