KAANAPALI - Maui Cultural Lands will offer free Christmas tree recycling on Saturday, Jan. 5.
Trees must be free of tinsel and decorations. Artificial trees will not be accepted.
Bring the trees to the Puukolii Train Station between 9 a.m. and noon for recycling. MCL will welcome donations for this "treecycling."
In Honokowai Valley, restoration of an ancient farming archaeological site has been ongoing, and on Wednesdays, volunteers venture deep into the realms of Honokowai for five hours of restorative work. Efforts include preserving cultural resources, stabilizing archaeological sites and reforesting the area using Native Hawaiian plants.
Volunteers meet at the Puukolii Train Station at 9 a.m. The day ends at 2:30 p.m. Bring lunch, water, sunscreen and insect repellant, and wear a hat, protective clothing and gloves if available. Be prepared to get dirty and enjoy the camaraderie.
Groups and families are welcome. MCL asks for your help to malama (care for) our land, heritage and our future.
