Rain Gardens at Windward Community College
Young volunteers prepare to navigate the native plants and hunt down invasive weeds!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Hui o Ko’olaupoko at our upcoming Garden Workdays. Below are some details about the event. You can find additional information and pictures on our website.

Windward Community College Rain Garden: This project encompasses 3,000 square feet of rain gardens and native vegetation in front of Hale 'Imiloa. Rain Gardens are designed to capture storm water run-off from impervious surfaces like roofs, roads, and parking lots. The rain garden traps and infiltrates the storm water run-off before it has a chance to carry pollutants into nearby streams and bays.

Volunteers will be involved in clearing invasive plant species from the gardens using small hand tools and hand pulling weeds as we work to open areas for re-introduction of native plants.

  • Please wear closed-toe shoes and work clothes that you don't mind getting wet and dirty. Long pants and sleeves are recommended.
  • Bring a water bottle, snack, sun protection, and bug repellant. All tools & gloves will be provided.
  • Participants under age 16 must have adult supervision.
  • Participants under the age of 18, attending without their parent or legal guardian, must bring the signed waiver.
  • Our community workdays and volunteer events happen rain or shine!
We offer a variety of regularly scheduled events each month as well as weekday outings to join our field staff. We can also work with groups to arrange a private weekday service trip or educational visit at no cost to the group. The best way see what events we have coming up and which would be the best fit for you is to check out our calendar at huihawaii.org/calendar.

Feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any additional questions. I look forward to working with you!

Mission Statement

Protecting ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.

Description

The mission of Hui o Koolaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.

Throughout the Koolaupoko moku (Makapuu to Kualoa) in Windward Oahu, land-based pollution is a leading threat to ocean health and resources. Hui o Koolaupoko (HOK) addresses these problems by being a leader in community-based watershed management; working with communities to improve water quality through ecosystem restoration, implementing low-impact retrofits (LIR), reducing non-point source pollution and developing education, outreach and volunteer programs for all ages.

Along with HOK’s restoration work in Koolaupoko, the organization provides services including technical consultation, restoration design, trainings and watershed restoration capacity building throughout Oahu and the State of Hawaii.
