|Makiki Restoration Day is a multi-faced effort designed to improve
a specific portion of the Alwa Wai watershed. Considerable media
and agency attention has been directed to Ala Wai clean-up efforts
as legislators, the EPA, and local non-profits have begun to focus
on this watershed as an environmentally important and under-appreciated
aspect of the daily lives of Honolulu residents.
||YES will provide coordination and supervision of neighbor island
storm drain stenciling projects and stream cleanups, organize school
visits to discuss water quality and pollution prevention, and assist
in recruitment of volunteers for PRC public outreach projects

stream and wetland restoration, trail maintenance, and litter pick-up.
An estimated 9.02 tons (of proposed 6 tons) of litter removed.
