Much of the world recognizes Earth Day during the month of April. But in Hawai‘i, every day is Earth Day! Native Hawaiians take great pride in respecting, protecting and maintaining the ‘Ᾱina. Join members of your community for Lā Wahi Hānai, a special clean up and educational experience, Saturday, April 9 at Kupu Ola Nānākuli Elementary School.
Bring the ʻohana from 8 to 10:30 a.m. every third Saturday of each month. We’ll begin with malama ‘āina (clean-up) and then move on to wā a‘o (educational time). Come prepared: dress comfortably and don’t forget a hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, appropriate shoes and a water bottle. And, bring something from your home to share, perhaps papaya, mango, fish, kalo, a song or a story.
Mark your calendar: Lā Wahi Hānai
