HONOLULU --   With their vast expanses of grasslands reaching to the horizon across hundreds of acres, fences, and paniolo tending to flocks of grazing animals, the ranches of Hawaii have played an impactful role in the evolving history of Hawaii’s economy, industry, transportation, environment, culture and fashion.

(HONOLULU) – Nine employees of the Coca-Cola Company based in Hawai‘i played hooky from work today.  They volunteered on behalf of the Ko‘olau Mountains Watershed Partnership (KMWP) by hiking up a trail on the west side of the mountain range in order to plant native koa.  This was a continuation of The Coca-Cola Company’s nationwide commitment to replenish all water it uses in its bottling operations. There are two bottling plants on O‘ahu and last April the company announced it was donating $200,000 to KMWP for ungulate fencing that eventually will surround much of the sprawling Waiawa Watershed, which supplies drinking water to the majority of O‘ahu’s residents.

HONOLULU -- The Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Boating and Ocean Resources (DOBOR), operator of the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor, will host its second public meeting on planning for use of various sites in the harbor.
