JOIN US FOR CLEANUP EVENTS AT KOLEKOLE PARK
Please be aware that Kolekole & Hakalau Parks are both closed right now and awaiting major cleanup projects specifically for Lead Contamination. The bridges going over these areas have been painted for decades with lead-based paint that is now contaminating the areas heavily. Since we want to be respectful to the cleanup areas and are concerned for health issues at the sites... the scheduled cleanup events in March/April have been postponed. As soon as the cleanups have been completed and its safe to return to the areas affected, we will reschedule the cleanup events and return to steward these sacred places along the Hamakua Coast. Mahalo for your support. Please pass the word on to friends & family and let them know of the contamination in the area.
