The Nene‘e program is designed for keiki ages 5 – 14 and held during the DOE intersession breaks. Participants explore their community through daily site visits and by engaging in mo‘olelo (stories), hana no‘eau (native Hawaiian skills and practices) and kuleana (stewardship). Daily lessons emphasize establishing life long habits that support our planet like using refillable water bottles, eliminating single use plastics and removing invasives from our natural environments.
