Our partnership with Waikoloa Village Association (WVA) has been running strong for the past decade, most recently highlighted by our support for fuels reduction throughout various empty lots in the Village. We are even funding a pilot grazing project within the Village, using the Big Island Goat Dozers as a sustainable way of reducing the fuels among empty lots.
We were able to talk about these recent efforts along with other wildfire preparedness information at an information booth at the entrance of the WVA Annual Meeting at Waikoloa Elementary School on May 9th. Hundreds of residents filtered through the doorway, many of them stopping by our outreach booth. We even pulled in $100 worth of donations from grateful residents. It's through community support that we are able to continue our successful projects, so if you'd like to join in and become a part of the HWMO team, please DONATE.
