U.S. Navy, Air Force and community volunteers will conduct a cleanup starting at 9 a.m. at Loko Pa’aiau fishpond on Saturday in support of National Public Lands Day.
Aiea Hawaiian Civic Club members will join the military to clear trash and invasive plants along the shoreline, including mangrove and pickleweed. Loko Pa’aiau fishpond is a historic site that once provided a stable food source for the Hawaiian chiefs and commoners. It is one of only three fishponds on the base still relatively intact.
The fishpond is accessible via McGrew Point military housing.
