Ho‘olale i ka ‘ai a ka u‘i
On the Mauka edge of Ka’ewai Elementary Lays the Ka’ewai Stream, once a thriving stream of gushing water housing opai and guppy.
The streams’ water source has been blocked and with the exception of a section of wetland (hopefully an underground spring) the stream bed is dry. For the past 3 years, under the direction of Kumu Faith and her haumana, they have restored the stream by removing opala and invasive plants, and planting native Hawaiian plants.
Alan Kumalae (Imua’69) and his wife Lynette will lead our class as we provide support, plants and manpower toward the restoration of this Ka’ewai Stream and the community of Kalihi. –Pua Ruane
