The U.S. Army Garrison Pōhakuloa Training Area partnered with the non-profit volunteer organization Waimea Trails & Greenways to clear debris from the riverbed at Waimea Trails earlier this month.

Almost 40 Soldiers from the 84th Engineer Battalion based on O‘ahu spent the morning of Sunday, April 2 on this community service project. The soldiers gave up their free time after completing their training mission at Pōhakuloa Training Area – located between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea on Hawai‘i Island – to support this project.
