REMINDER: Join Maile and Her Family at Beach Clean-up, April 26


Please join me and my family at Nani O Wai`anae’s “Keep Hawaii Beautiful Day." We will be hosting a beach clean-up and beautification planting:

When: Saturday, April 26, 2008; 8-11am
Where: Maili Point across from Maili 76 gas station, aka Nanikai/Ulehawa Beach Park (located at 87-890 Farrington Highway, cross street is Hookele St.)
What: As part of Nani O Wai`anae “Keep HI Beautiful Day” Beach Clean-Up, we will be cleaning and beautifying the beach area from Maili Point to Hakimo Road; gloves and trash bags will be provided.
Bring: sun protection and water; optional - swimwear, native plants & planting tools.
For Information: Call 696-4677 or 586-8460

The dream is to create a “People’s Path” along the beach from Maili Point to Nanakuli McDonald’s. This path would connect with the State’s planned bicycle path, and someday extend along the entire Wai`anae Coast. We will be working with the City and other interested parties to hopefully make this “People’s Path” a reality, and the beach clean-up and beautification is the first step towards this goal.

Nani O Wai`anae, which was the first official “Keep America Beautiful” participant in the state, is in charge of organizing beach clean-ups throughout O`ahu on April 26. The Makaha Hawaiian Civic Club is also participating, and is planning to meet at Makaha Marketplace for a clean-up that morning. More volunteers are needed to host and help with other clean-ups. For more information, call Katy Kok or Lori at 696-1920 or 484-1000.
