Wa­ter­sports School To Lead Stream Cleanup

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - News -

The long­est stream in Haleiwa needs your help to keep its wa­ters healthy.

Heidi and Nate Bur­goyne, founders of the stand up pad­dling school Rain­bow Wa­ter­sports Ad­ven­tures, will host their fifth Anahulu Stream cleanup beginning at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 18, and they wel­come all in­ter­ested vol­un­teers. Par­tic­i­pants should meet at Haleiwa Beach Park, down the road from Surf-n-Sea near the lineup of outrig­ger ca­noes. Just look for their col­or­ful Rain­bow Wa­ter­sports van. Vol­un­teers are en­cour­aged to bring their stand up pad­dle boards, ca­noes or kayaks. Equip­ment is avail- able if needed. For more in­for­ma­tion call 372-9304 or visit www.rain­bowwa­ter­sports.com.

Rain­bow Wa­ter­sports has com­pleted four cleanups so far this year, dig­ging out a tent, car parts and more from the stream, which is home to sea tur­tles, fish and crabs, not to men­tion the chil­dren and fam­i­lies who en­joy us­ing it for fun recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties.

Bur­goyne said the tub­ing be­came tan­gled up dur­ing flood­ing in the stream. To help with the Sept. 18 cleanup, call 372-9304. Photo from Heidi Bur­goyne.
