Young Brothers Grant awarded to E Mau Na Ala Hele


Every year, Hawaii Tug & Barge/Young Brothers, Ltd. awards non-profit organizations grants for projects that address various community needs in areas such as health, education, the environment, and cultural enrichment.

This year, 40 organizations were each given $1,000 grants to support the many different grassroots efforts.

Among those receiving the grants was E Mau Na Ala Hele, a community based non-profit organization established in 1979, as an advocate for the perpetuation of historic Hawaiian trails.

As part of that effort, the organization’s members work to keep the trails and their surroundings clear, clean and inviting.

The grant received by E Mau Na Ala Hele will be used to purchase special firefighter backpacks to more easily water recently planted native and endangered plants in the sanctuaries in Pu‘u Wa‘awa‘a, North Kona.

Without irrigation the plants are very vulnerable in this drought-prone area.

E Mau volunteers are working with the state to help restore the rare dryland forests.
