First Manoa Makeover campus project begins this SaturdayUniversity of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
UH Mānoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw will lead student, staff and faculty volunteers on Saturday in planting sixteen monkeypod trees along Dole Street — the first in a series of "Mānoa Makeover" campus improvement projects.
The trees will provide shade, help reduce air pollution and global warming, and improve the beauty of the 300-acre Mānoa campus.
"Our students and administrators will be working side-by-side to plant the seeds for a second century of greatness at our Mānoa campus. We want to make this campus a destination of choice that‘s known for its beauty as well as its outstanding educational and research programs," said Chancellor Hinshaw.
Future "Mānoa Makeover" volunteer projects will include more tree-plantings, painting, cleanups, and other campus improvements. Sodexho will be providing refreshments for volunteers
