It was a hot day, but that didn’t deter 4 Rotarians and three guests from having a very fulfilling afternoon planting Milo trees to help reduce the carbon dioxide in the environment.

It was a hot day, but very rewarding for 4 Rotarians; Aleeka, Josh, Brian and Allen, along with Malakhi Reynolds (Carole and Will's son) and Jeramie Arend and Cindy Dabbous, friends of Aleeka in planting Milo trees as part of a District 5000 project spearheaded by the Eco Rotary of Kakaako.  The end goal was to plant a total of 5,000 trees on 10 acres near the Gunstock Ranch in Kahuku (Oahu's North Shore). Originally planned for November 28, 2020, but due to the pandemic and local restrictions, the service project had changed to be completed throughout the year in small crews.

Check out our photo album.

Together, 900 trees were planted, thus far the district's efforts have planted 4,300 trees. This project wouldn't be possible without the support of District 5000 and all Clubs in Oahu, Hawaii Legacy Reforestation Initiative, and Professor Camilo Mora
