HILT Collaborates with Kihei Charter School

On Earth Day this year, the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust and the Kihei Charter School signed an innovative Conservation Collaboration Agreement.  Part of that Agreement was completed last week when HILT staff gave a land conservation presentation to the students at their school.  The next part of the Agreement started today when the students began removing invasive plant species from our Waihee Coastal Dunes & Wetlands Refuge.  Check out the two piles of removed invasive plants in the photo.  Today, the students also collected driftwood to begin making natural mobiles to sell at Fourth Friday in Kihei so that the students can buy HILT memberships later this year, the third part of the Agreement, and show their support for land conservation and a green future for themselves.  Mahalo Kihei Charter School!!!
