A model of professional development in environmental education, Ulu Kalihi empowers educators both in schools and the community to teach about their environment with the support of:
Together, these tools form Ulu Kalihi, a sustainable approach to strengthening environmental stewardship with culturally sensitive strategies.
Kalihi is a major urban watershed in Honolulu, and the Kalihi Stream is on Hawai‘i’s 303(d) list of impaired waters. While Kalihi is a vibrant and multicultural community, poverty is an issue. Per capita income in the state’s lowest 25% and about 70% of students receive free or reduced lunch. However, this community possesses many internal resources and Ulu Kalihi helps harness those assets to enhance the Valley’s environmental sustainability.
PREL is proud to partner with Ho`oulu `Aina at Kokua Kalihi Valley and the Bishop Museum to deliver Ulu Kalihi.
Ulu Kalihi is supported by G.N. Wilcox Trust, Mclnerny Foundation and First Hawaiian Bank.
