300 Ewa Makai Middle School Students Led by 20 Mililani High School Students Visit Kapapapuhi
300 Ewa Makai Middle School 8th graders, supported by several enthusiastic teachers, several adult volunteers and one amazing principal, visited Kapapapuhi Point Park for a day of place-based learning. If youʻre not already amazed by this post, these young visitors were rotated and lead through 8 learning stations by 20 volunteer Mililani High School student leaders. Students learned olelo and mo`olelo Hawaii (Hawaiian language and important stories), removed native species, propagated and out-planted native ground cover species, picked up marine debris and learned about pollution in the food web with a fun game of tag. The combined effort of all involved resulted in almost 1/3 of an acre of cleared mangrove, the removal of thousands of pieces of plastic and hundreds of native ground cover plants out-planted to help prevent polluted run-off from going into the waters of Pu`uloa. Ho`omaika`i to everyone involved!
Mililani High School alaka`i (leaders) slept in the Ewa Makai Middle School library to be at their field stations on time!
