Aloha AACE Hawaii Section Members and Guests,
We are thrilled to announce we are planning our first live, IN PERSON event in nearly two years! We felt the time was right to schedule an event together again and it will be for a great cause as well.
This April, in support of Earth Day 2022, we will be hosting a community service AACE Hawaii Volunteer Event: working with the non-profit organization Mālama Maunalua to help clean the bay of invasive algae. For those not familiar with Mālama Maunalua check out their official website or Twitter. Here is their mission statement:
Mission Statement: To restore and conserve Maunalua Bay through community kuleana (responsibility).
Mālama Maunalua is committed to restoring the health of Maunalua Bay through habitat restoration, science and planning, and education and outreach. Restoring Maunalua Bay takes a community that understands the Bay is in trouble, believes the Bay is worth saving, and has hope that the decline can be reversed. Our work is driven by these community members who help improve the quality of Maunalua Bay.
