Please mark your calendar to Help Malama our Kaneilio Heiau (Poka’i Bay) and the surrounding areas.

We are thinking to also address the litter along Lualualei Beach – the worst site being opposite the lst Kamani Tree (on Poka’i Bay St) and the area across from Pizza Hut.

Bags, gloves supplied.

Sunsets approx 7:08pm it will be beautiful as always.  Let’s not let careless littering mar the beauty!

Anyone who can bring jugs of water to help the struggling plants on the heiau, please do so.

The more help – the wider we can clean.

Tamura type bags work best too.
