Service project at Ulupo Heiau improves the view

At today’s service project at Ulupo Heiau we had 27 students from Mid-Pacific Institute, several adult volunteers and Glenn and crew from Olomana Gardens. Some students worked the lo’i, others worked on the banks. A third larger group moved cut up Hau into a large pile. Hananloa, Kaimi and Doc Burrows led the groups in their restoration work.

A fitting end to the days work was when Glenn’s crew dropped the last major Java Plum breaking the view plain from the heiau. It’s a great view now of Kawai Nui Marsh. And the bonus is the Java Plum crushed a lot of Hau on the way down. The kalo lo’is are looking better with each day.

Go check out the new view!

The Kailua High students will be there in force on Monday for service work.
