On Friday, April 26th the 31st annual Earth Day Celebration Conservation Career Day Event was held at the University of Hawai’i in Hilo. Over 1500 students and teachers from local schools attended. It was a bustling day full of education and fun for the kids.
Hawaii Environmental Restoration tabled this event and engaged with many curious minds to explain about the Keau’ohana Native Rainforest project and its importance to Hawaii. Informational exhibits and science demonstrations, and many other engaging activities were offered as were free plants and other giveaways throughout the day. It is so essential for our young people to be exposed to opportunities like this that honor and respect our precious planet.
