HHF In the Field
Last week, HHF staff participated in the annual Cultural Resources Management meetings with Navy Region Hawai`i and Marine Corps Base Hawai`i this week. The 4 days of meetings and site visits are held to review all preservation actions from the previous year and prepare for coordination for anticipated projects in the coming year.
The meetings included an opportunity for site visits to nearby historical and cultural sites and a memorable one was the trip to Loko Paaiau fishpond which is about 400 years old.
Volunteer to help clean up the fishpond on Earth Day, April 22, from 9:00 a.m. to Noon
The Navy and the Aiea Native Hawaiian Civic Club are partnering to clean up the Loko Paaiau fishpond.
Volunteer for clean-up efforts this Earth Day and help remove invasive vegetation and plant native vegetation. Other volunteer activities may include trash pick up and restoration of the makai wall and other features.
Volunteers will be briefed on the archaeological and cultural background of the fishpond, natural resources of the area and storm water issues.
They’ll be time for question and answers and light snacks will be provided.
To volunteer, contact Jeff Pantaleo, 471-1171 X368 / firstname.lastname@example.org by April 17.
