Community work day slated for Waimea trail

A community work day is slated from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Ke Ala Kahawai O Waimea.

Volunteers will meet at Ulu Laau, the Waimea Nature Park, and join the crew in spreading wood chips and doing other maintenance chores.

Ke Ala Kahawai O Waimea follows the Waikoloa stream through town for 1.04 miles. The trail surface is packed dirt and wood chips. Future improvements call for a paved tread.
