Corps of Engineers Cleans Up Fort DeRussy for National Public Lands Day 2015
Two of the 35 cadets led by Punahou JROTC Commander Lt. Col. Robert Takao concentrated their efforts on cleaning up the beach berm behind historic Battery Randolph. More than 50 volunteers picked up trash at Fort DeRussy in Waikiki in honor of National Public Lands Day on Sept. 19. The Corps of Engineers’ Regional Visitor Center (RVC) coordinated the event which was supported by Corps employees, U.S. Army Transporters from the 545th Transportation Company, and Punahou Junior ROTC cadets. National Public Lands Day is the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the U.S. It began in 1994 and focuses on education and partnerships to care for the nation’s natural treasures.
