Join North Shore Community Land Trust on the first Saturday of each month in our effort to restore Kalou Fishpond and the surrounding area in Waialeʻe, Oʻahu. Kalou is a traditional Hawaiian loko wai, or freshwater fishpond originating from natural springs in the area. Activities may include removing invasive weeds, packing out rubbish, planting, and performing other tasks suitable for a variety of ages and skill levels. We will begin work at 9 a.m. and wrap up by noon. Water refills and light snacks will be provided.
Our meeting spot is in Waialeʻe, across Kamehameha Hwy. from the former Crawford’s Convalescent Home. Please refer to the links below for the precise location.

Parking is along the makai (ocean) side of the highway, the Pupukea side of the bus stop/ historic building (see image below). Please reserve the area fronting the gate and historic building as a turn-around area for those approaching from the Pupukea side of the highway. Drivers of low-clearance vehicles may wish to turn around at a nearby location (e.g. Waialeʻe Beach Park) because the ground in this area is a bit uneven.

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.
