The Kona Soil and Water Conservation District
Has Teamed with the Leo's Club of Kailua_Kona.
The Konawaena High School Leo Club has partnered
with the Kona Soil and Water Conservation District to raise
awareness of soil conservation within the community.
As part of the project, the Leo Club has done several tree
plantings this school year and has put together packets on
the five main concerns for soil conservation. The packets
have been mailed out to 100 businesses, including local coffee
farms, to educate private landowners.
We thought it would be good to preserve the land we
have for future generations, Leo Club president Megan
Baguso said. And with all the issues like climate change
and everything, I felt like we could help with that.
Kona Soil and Water Conservation District board member Jeff
Knowles visited with the Leo Club in June to give a presentation
on soil conservation, and the Leo Club was quick to jump on
board with the mission.
Join Jeff Knowles October 24th for a Zoom meeting to discuss
the mission and upcoming events.
