Isaac, a Boy Scout from local troop 137 successfully led a community workday at Kapapapuhi park Saturday, fulfilling his requirements to become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable as a Boy Scout. We appreciate the mentoring offered by our very own Bert Weeks!
Isaac organized and led 30 people from his troop, church, and school to remove invasive vegetation from the mouth of Honouliuli stream. Together, they cleared over 1,700 sq feet of mangroves and 560 sq feet of pickleweed in support Hui o Ho'ohonua's Mālama Puʻuloa initiative to restore native habitat and Hawaiian fishponds to the area.
Isaac showed great leadership in the field, demonstrating the skills he's gained in earning Scout's highest honor. Congratulations! On behalf of Hui o Ho'ohonua, we would like to say mahalo nui loa, thank you very much, to Isaac, his family, and all the volunteers that helped out on Saturday.
