Waikoloa Park Used to Demonstrate Fire Mitigation Techniques

HWMO made the front page news of West Hawaii Today! Shortly after the garden's opening West Hawaii Today published a quality article on the ceremonial event and the purpose of the garden.

From the Source:

"the garden holds many secrets to mitigating the hazards of a real brush fire"

and

"For fourth-grade Waikoloa School students Miko Domingo, Shamar Sarme and River Goldberg, having everyone realize just how much of an impact wildfires have had on the island and will continue to have in the future is important. The trio hopes that residents from around the island, not just those in South Kohala, will visit the park and take home some ideas to protect their own homes and communities."
