Muruga Simmonds of California said he came because it is a good way to give back to the place he’s enjoyed.

Sally Bauer of Washington said she’s always enjoyed Lydgate Park, and has participated in the big cleanup and community workday on previous visits to Kauai.

They were some of around 200 people who celebrated Earth Day by participating in the community workday where the Friends of Kamalani expanded its weekly beach cleanup and sprucing of the park to include more major tasks such as scuba diving to scour the underwater areas of Morgans Ponds.

Other groups cleaned the adjacent heiau, while others did maintenance work on the Kamalani Playground. Students from the Kapaa High School Interact Club, in addition to maintaining the Zero Waste refuse stations, joined the Kauai High School Key Club in doing work on the recently-added disc golf holes at the adjoining Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Sports Park.

Others worked on maintenance at the Bynum Bridge (formerly Kamalani Kai bridge) and its surrounding area, including Ke Ala Hele Makalae, the Eastside coastal path.
