We had an awesome day at the Keahuolū Historic Preserve with the ʻaha ʻopio (youth group) and some of their ‘ohana (families). Several staff members from both Hilo and Kona children’s centers joined us.
Volunteers hauled all the dead branches from the ali’i (royal) compound to the cart path, while Morgan chipped the haul into mulch, and Likeke cut some of the preserve's dead trees and branches.
A good time was had by all!
