It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the four weeks – with a holiday on July 4th, and return to project development on July 5th.
Led by the Pūlama Lāna‘i Culture & Historic Preservation and Natural Resources Crew (Ben Ostrander, Kaleo Ropa, Kekoa Benanua, Jesse and Taz Del Rosario Stacy Miyamoto, U‘ilani Stokes), Program leaders Shelly Kaleialoha Preza and Ikaika Ramones, and LHES Marine Science teachers Nick Brillande and Rachel Lauter, they set their hand to reconstructing the ancient kuapā, and study the marine environment.
After lunch, the group returned to cool Lāna‘i City, and the E ‘ike Hou students got back to the classroom and continued their planning for end of program project recommendations and creative writing.
7:30 am - The E ‘ike Hou iā Lāna‘i (15 students) and Kāna‘i Kanaloa (17 students) gathered at the LHES Science classroom, loaded up the supplies and took off in the vans for a day at Waia‘ōpae Loko stewardship.
