October is make a difference month in Hawaii

As part of Make-A-Difference Month, public clean-up events are scheduled all over Oahu.
The events are designed to create awareness of such water quality issues as non-point source pollution, while also encouraging residents and city government to work together on community-cleanup events.
All volunteers must be 12 years of age or older and will need to sign a release form to participate in the cleanups listed above. Participants should anticipate getting dirty, wear covered shoes, use sun protection, and bring drinking water.
