EA’s Honolulu Office Volunteers for Earth Day Stream Restoration Project
Hunt Valley, Maryland (18 May 2012)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that several of its Honolulu office staff members celebrated Earth Day this year by teaming up with other local volunteers to remove invasive species and restore the native vegetation along He‘eia Stream in Kaneohe, Hawaii.
In an effort to protect ocean health by restoring the land (‘aina), EA worked with Hui o Ko‘olaupoko, a Hawaiian non-profit organization focusing on improving island ecosystems from mountains (mauka) and the ocean (makai).
The stream restoration at He‘eia Stream is a 4-year project that began in 2010, and aims to restore approximately 4,000 feet of riparian habitat. EA volunteers worked to clear invasive vegetation and debris along the stream bank to allow for future reforesting with native vegetation. The project will address erosion control along stream banks and improve water quality. In the future, this project will also provide community groups with educational opportunities.
“We are appreciative that our Honolulu office employees continue to contribute their free time to support these volunteer projects,” said Michael Battle, EA’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our staff enjoys the opportunity to make a difference in their communities; and when their efforts reflect EA’s heritage as an environmental consulting firm, it is especially gratifying.”
