Tropical Living Festival

HAAS student Mahina Atterbury helping to educate the public about our work

The Hawai’i Academy of Arts and Science in Pahoa held its 3rd annual Tropical Living Festival. We offered community outreach for the Keau’ohana Forest project at this Big Island’s community, culture, and environment event. We recruited 9 new volunteers and enjoyed connecting with interested people and supporters about the work involved in keeping this precious forest resource. As part of a senior project, Mahina’s offered 50 hours of volunteer time both at this event and in the forest. Mahalo Mahina!
