  We took a drive to Oahu’s windward side where a rare Native Hawaiian plant and endangered bird are thriving.

Lisa Marten of Healthy Climate Communities walked her through a reforestation tour of the Hamakua Marsh-- It’s a project near and dear to her heart. It’s  literally her back yard...

Marten is always looking for volunteers. The group has set its community work day schedule for the third Saturday of every month. They meet this weekend from 9 to 11 am.
