Successful Year for Friends of Ka`ena

Throughout 2009, Friends of Ka`ena (FOK) have worked to improve conditions at Ka`ena.  In April 2009, FOK became a Kokua Partner with the Hawaii State Parks.  The Kokua partnership allows stewardship, education, and outreach activities within the park.  FOK has completed beach clean-ups, service projects with schools, public outreach, was awarded a National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance grant for technical assistance, obtained permits to conduct naturalist-led hikes, completed strategic planning to further develop FOK positions, and are participating in the State’s Ka`ena Stewardship Area Advisory Group.  It has been a busy year!

This year, we are continuing the many successful activities that happened last year and are expanding our work.  We strive to increase our membership and invite you to join! We welcome all types of interests.  Whether you simply want to become a member to financially support our efforts or want to volunteer your time, FOK appreciates your membership.  We are currently developing volunteer positions to help us achieve our ambitious goals, they may include leading hikes, native plant restoration, outreach events, website updates, and more.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at info@friendsofkaena.org. If you have a particular interest or skill, please indicate in the email.
