YCA at the Malama Learning Center as seen on “Outside Hawaii”

Cadets in the Hawai’i National Guard’s Youth Challenge Academy program based at Kalaeloa, O’ahu visited nearby Kauhale Preserve, managed by the Hoakalei Cultural Foundation and owned by Haseko Development. They learned of the coastal site’s history and plans for the future. They also helped care for the site so that native Hawaiian plants may have a chance to come back. This educational visit was coordinated by the Malama Learning Center as part of the Honouliuli Ahupua’a Project funded by the NOAA BWET program. This video was produced by Outside Hawai`i for the Malama Learning Center.

Forward this email to your friends and family so that they can watch the video too.
