Our waterfalls are just a short hike from the picnic area, but depending on the time of year, you may find plenty of delicious trail snacks, including: strawberry guavas, pineapple guavas, java plums, papayas, edible flowers, and even Jamaican lilikoi (passion fruit)!

On otherwise dreadfullly dismal days, we also wander back to our adventures in #Kauai 🌴... when we were warm enough to munch on the most delicious, organic shaved ice 🍧 from @wishingwellshaveice 💫
Ahhh... sweet memories

Congratulations Future Soldier Wayne Noda of Waimea High for enlisting under the medical field as 68H Optical Laboratory Specialist!
The optical laboratory specialist is primarily responsible for making and repairing eyeglasses that are provided for Army personnel.
Surface lens blanks, fabricates and repairs
Assemble prescription spectacles
Maintain tools and equipment
Job training for an optical laboratory apecialist requires 10 weeks of Basic Combat Training and 24 weeks of Advanced Individual Training, including practice in making and repairing optical devices.
Some of the skills you’ll learn are:
Knowledge of ophthalmic optics, ocular anatomy and physiology
Comprehension of optical laboratory supply and administration
Understanding of optical laboratory procedures sufficient to completely fabricate and dispense prescription military eyewear in both office and field environments
As a guide, the most rewarding part of our job, is seeing the sense of accomplishment and pride that our guests feel after rappelling a 60' waterfall. Our guests usually have no previous experience rappelling, and sometimes even have to overcome the fear of heights - talk about stepping out of your comfort zone!
"The Thrift Store That Changes Lives" ...more than just a place to drop off your used items, this store is working to change the lives of Kauai families.
This photo is from a 2017 Community Based Instruction (CBI) excursion.
At the end of our school year we take participants out into the community to meet and have them get familiar with the different agencies in the community (putting a name with the face). We also visit the mayor and give him an update on our program and meet the students.
We end our day at Kukui grove to purchase lunch with an financial literacy activity of staying within their budget of $11 for lunch.
These are basic life skills that lead to success!
