Hawaii's 26th Annual Coastal Clean-Up – Puako Beach Volunteers Needed in September, 2011
The Puako Beach Association and Friends is looking for volunteers to help clean up six miles of coastal land and waters from Wailea, Puako, and Pauoa Beach areas.
Calling all divers, snorkelers, and land cleaners—this is your reward at the end of a long day cleaning up the beach and ocean!
When and where:
- Saturday, September 17th, meet at the Puako Boat ramp at 7:30a.m. to clean from Paniau to Waialea Beach (69’s).
- Saturday, September 24th, meet at Paniau to clean south to Pauoa Beach. Clean-up starts at 7:30a.m.
Last year, Hawaii Island had 173 volunteers who cleaned 6,257 tons of trash from 8 miles of shore and 1.5 miles of water during “Get The Drift and Bag It!” This year, we hope to exceed those numbers.
- dive/snorkel gear
- work gloves
Each site will offer a comfort station (lua), drinking water, and cleaning supplies. Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures at the Waikoloa Queen’s Shops and Kohala Divers at Kawaihae Center will both be offering free tanks of dive air and refills.
Want to clean and survey on your own time in September? You can do that, too! Reserve any of the six miles of coast by signing up in person, or email coordinator Cynthia Ho: firstname.lastname@example.org.

See you on the beach, or in the water helping to keep our pristine shoreline the best in the world!
