KHM Receives OHA Grant to Restore Fishponds

May 21, 2015 7:05 pm
KHM has recently been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to return momona (health and abundance) to the land and people of Molokai
through the community-based restoration of two ancient Hawaiian fishponds. Restoration goals of the project include: removing half an acre of mangrove,
rebuilding 500 linear feet of the kuapā (rock wall), removing six tons of gorilla ogo, and maintaining 100% of previously cleared shoreline areas. Social goals of the
project include building leadership in the next generation through year-round internships, engaging community through monthly workdays, educating youth in
environmental stewardship through hands-on programs, and strengthening community through partnerships and outreach.
