Four hundred acres of wetlands in He'eia on Oahu is undergoing a transformation, but it doesn't include high-rises or apartment buildings.
Local volunteers are weeding, raking and planting to restore this 400-acre wetland tucked away in the picturesque Ko'olaus.
The Hawaii Community Development Authority leased the wetlands in He'eia to non-profit Kako'o 'Oiwi.
With the help of volunteers, they will bring the land back to the way it looked like 100 years ago.
