Several school groups are helping with maintenance projects in Lili`uokalani Gardens during the month of November.
“Clean the Pond and search for Buried Treasure has been the theme of pond cleaning efforts for two years,” said Friends president K.T. Cannon-Eger. More than 4,000 gallons of mud have been removed from the pond as well as old fishing poles, rubber slippers and the occasional treasure of a carved stone.”
Saturday, November 17, from 8 to noon is this month’s volunteer day. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring your own gloves. Tools and some protective footwear are available for those going in the pond. There are land based tasks for those not wishing to get wet and muddy.
Refreshments will be provided.
Other groups involved in November include: the Board of Student Publications at UH-Hilo, Halau LeiManu, and Kamehameha Schools sixth graders.
