ELP students volunteer at 3rd Annual Benefit for the Country

On November 2, 2013, ELP students, Jen Cha (’16), Shae Kamaka‘ala (’14) and WSRSL alumn, Zach Dilonno (‘13) volunteered at the North Shore Community Land Trust’s (NSCLT) 3rd Annual Benefit for the County dinner, held at the breathtaking Sunset Ranch in Pūpūkea, O‘ahu. The benefit dinner featured some of Hawai‘i’s best entertainment and food catered from Town Restaurant, who served a fantastic dinner made with all local ingredients! The NSCLT has been very active in protecting land slated for development on the North Shore. To date, NSCLT and its partners has conserved 1,600 acres of land and is continuing its efforts to protect another 4,754 acres of land to ensure that the “natural landscape, cultural heritage, and rural character” of the North Shore will be preserved for us and for our future generations.
