Did you know that before Hale‘iwa became famous for surfing, it served as a place of importance for Native Hawaiians? Loko Ea (located in Hale‘iwa) is one of two distinct sand-dune ponds that is associated with ancient deities, cultural practices, and historical events.  Come out and join us to help restore this once thriving area.  


The Hawai’i Spotlight program provides opportunities for students to explore different parts of the island and learn about the Hawaiian culture and the community we live in. These events are scheduled once per month.


Assist with restoration activities at Loko Ea. The day begins with cultural protocol (oli and pule) and Hawaiian values (laulima, aloha, mālama ʻāina, and lōkahi) are instilled and practiced throughout the day. Volunteers will learn about the history of Waialua and Loko Ea Fishpond and participate in meaningful work projects to help restore our 400 year old loko iʻa.


Participants should bring water, sunscreen, towel, a hat, and bug spray.  Reef shoes or tabs are required.  Wear clothing you don’t mind getting wet.  Bring an extra pair of clothes and shoes to change into afterwards. 


Bus transportation is provided:
Pick up at Hawaii Loa Campus at 7:00am

Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to departure time.
