In August 2008, Kihei Charter School, the Department of Land and Natural Resources, TEACH Maui Inc., and the Kihei Canoe Club partnered together with the vision of engaging children in the proactive process of problem solving the environmental and cultural issues facing Maui. Their proposed project and request for B-WET grant funding was named Malama i Na kamali'i kokua nui O holomoana: to nourish our child’s voyage of stewardship. If approved, the proposed project will make available funds needed to provide outdoor classroom experiences for over 400 Kihei Charter School students. The project is broadly focused on the coastal environment of the moku of Honua’ulu, with specific effort in the Ahihi Kinau Natural Area Reserve (NAR), a 2,045-acre site located Maui County’s Makawao land management district. Final determination and notification will occur in May 2009.
