Restoring the He'eia Fish Pond

On Saturday the Aliamanu & Spalding LITs headed up to the Windward side of the island to help restore the historic He'eia Fish Pond. After gearing up in gym shoes and walking across the slippery path, they made it to the other side of the stone wall that they were working to restore. Our teens worked alongside UH students and Kamehameha alumni, helping lift heavy stones from one end to the other.

It was great to see them working with the college students to accomplish a common goal. After we finished our work, He'eia treated us to some ono eats and said a special Hawaiian prayer to thank us for our help.
