Storming into 2022
The start of the year has been a sprint! You may have spotted us around the island. We had participants and volunteers at multiple events including the prestigious HURT 100 of which ULOHA is a Partner.
Pictured left is Matt mid-stride with Nandor on his heels.
That same weekend we were in the field volunteering with the Department of State Parks at Ka'ena Point.
We removed invasive plants to restore habitat for the critically imperiled Hawaiian yellow-faced bee (Hylaeus anthracinus).
Here's a short list of some upcoming events to look out for:
3/5 - Department of State Parks Volunteer Day at Ka'ena Point
3/6 - Hapalua: King's Runner 10K
3/12 - The North Shore Triathlon
3/19 - HURT's: Aiea Express - details TBA
