Sixteen Marines from the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing donated their time to support the Waimea community, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Ula La’au, Waimea Nature Park.

Taking a break from their military training at Pohakuloa Training Area, the Marines cleared more than 200 meters of brushed covered trail at the Waimea Nature Park in less than 4 hours. The Marine volunteers worked hard using rakes, picks, hoes and other hand tools to blaze a walking trail adjacent to the local stream. They re-purposed the wood chips as cover for the newly cleared path.It is a favorite place to visit by the Big Island community.

Leningrad Elarionoff hosted the event.
