National Public Lands Day 2012
Cadets from the Punahou JROTC Program clean up Fort DeRussy as part of National Public Lands Day. “We’ve got about 22 students out here today all engaged in a great effort to help the environment. We’re really pleased with what they do,” said Lt. Col. Robert Takao, JROTC commander at Punahou High School. His cadets concentrated their efforts on cleaning up the beach berm behind historic Battery Randolph. “We’ve been doing this for the last five or six years and we always get willing volunteers. It’s never hard to get the cadets to come out because they realize how good it is for our world to do things like this. I’m really proud of them,” Takao said.
