End of The Year cleanup at the Puako Boat Ramp is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2016. Meet at 7:30am.

Mahalo Volunteers and Partners!

Everyone has to be proud of their contribution to marine conservation on the South Kohala Coast. Total documented plastics were 63.7% of the 6291 pounds of marine debris and land based trash volunteers removed from our water, shoreline and trails.

We had a variety of activities for local volunteers to choose from the year. Cleanups were combined with environmental awareness sign workshops. Hawaii elementary, middle, high school and foreign students joined several of our cleanups. Hawaii visitors also attended several of our cleanup.

Your tax exempt donations will keep us sustainable. Help us to continue our marine conservation work and educational programs on the South Kohala Coast. Email kpb@hawaii.rr.com.
