Grade 8 students at Saint Louis School, Honolulu, HI, care for Palolo Stream.

Joe Nugent, Ministry Lead at Saint Louis School, Honolulu, HI, sends us this update.

On Monday, April 17, 2023, the grade 8 students of Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Hawai'i, spent the day cleaning up trash, pulling weeds, and planting native plants along the banks of Palolo Stream. Palolo Stream runs through campus and is an important waterway from the mountains to the ocean. It is the breeding ground for several species of fish unique to Hawai'i. Unfortunately, the stream has been harmed by it being used as a dumping ground for invasive species of fish, garbage, and waste soil. Many invasive plants have taken over the ecosystem as well. But, through the efforts of Saint Louis School's 'āina (land) based learning program, Chaminade University of Honolulu, and other local partnerships, the section of the stream on campus has been improving dramatically in the past few years.
