Last Thursday, June 19th, rare koa wood was stolen from the foundation in Heʻeia Park. This was rare wood, being used to build a traditional outrigger canoe for Honolulu Pearls Canoe Club. The club lost its koa canoe at Nanakuli Beach Park when the canoe sustained permanent damage on a beach landing after a race.

How You Can Help
