Sherwoods Beach
Hawai‘i is known for beautiful beaches, but marine debris can spoil the most beautiful view. Help maintain the beauty of Sherwoods at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park by participating in this beach cleaning project. This long, white beach gently slopes into the ocean providing a wonderful area for swimming and other water recreation.

Hawai‘i Nature Center

We invite our new transfer students to get dirty and take a hike. This project includes clearing vines, plants and local streams in beautiful Makiki Valley. The Hawai‘i Nature Center provides programs for 2,000 school children on Oahu and environmental education programs for families and adults. www.hawaiinaturecenter.org
