The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
NOTE: Our regularly-scheduled volunteer workday at Pūpūkea Paumalū has been moved to Sunset Beach Park (Paumalū) for the month of September.
Please join us on the fourth Saturday of the month, Saturday September 22, 2018, as continue working on the temporary fence at Sunset Beach Park and tend to the 4,000+ native Hawaiian plants that we planted here on our September 8th volunteer workday! Activities will include fence building with ironwood posts repurposed from our restoration site at Kalaeokaunaʻoa (Kahuku Point), outplanting maintenance, watering, and other restoration tasks.
Meet at the comfort station at Sunset Beach Park on the ma uka side of the road by 9 a.m. to check in. We'll cross the street to the beach park together to get started. Please bring a reusable water bottle with plenty of water and reef-friendly sun protection, and wear closed toed shoes if you plan on helping with fence construction. We will be providing water refills, snacks and a light lunch. Message us for more information!
