Tri-Isle’s partner, the Central Maui Soil and Water Conservation District is administering a granted project to develop a watershed plan above Kihei. TIRCD is working to assist when needed and seeks to complement efforts such as a recently submitted NOAA-BWETs educational grant application that would target 7/8th graders in a coastal marine sampling project complemented by a high school internship program. In this concept, Hihei Charter School’s students and faculty would be a central to the project.
