PEARL HARBOR – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific and NAVFAC Hawaii partnered with Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center Pearl Harbor (NAVSUP FLCPH) April 22 to participate in the fifth annual Earth Day Fair on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH).

"Environmental stewardship, sustainable design, energy conservation and renewable energy opportunities are top priorities for the Navy and our Region Hawaii team," said Capt. Michael Williamson, NAVFAC Hawaii commanding officer.

This year’s Navy Earth Day theme continues the 2013 theme of “Global Reach - Local Action,” which highlights all individuals, military and civilian, having the responsibility to protect our environment through opportunities such as local outreaches and programs.

"We take great pride in working collaboratively with all key stakeholders to explore net-zero energy solutions; to energy adaptively re-use our historic structures incorporating Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified designs; and constantly expanding environmentally friendly practices across the Joint Base such as xeriscaping with the use of native plants, creative composting and recycling,” said Williamson.

The NAVSUP FLCPH Earth Day Fair is an opportunity for Navy, Air Force, and members of the community to meet, exchange ideas, and show solidarity in protecting our environment.

“With the participation of a wide swath of military, state, local, and non-governmental groups, this event is the epitome of what Earth Day stands for - a convergence of people, best practices, and new technologies,” said Lt. j.g. Christopher Hebert, NAVSUP FLCPH event coordinator.

 Both NAVFAC Commands provided displays for marine mammals, energy savings, native plants, archaeology, recycling and spill prevention control and counter measure (SPCC).

NAVFAC Pacific’s Environmental Marine Resources group partnered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and provided educational materials, poster displays and fact sheets on how to protect Hawaiian monk seals. Souvenirs such as dog leashes and stickers were also given to those who visited the marine mammal’s booth.

"Earth Day serves as a great opportunity for us to educate the public, especially military families who are new to Hawaii, about the protected species they may encounter while living here," said Meredith Fagan, NAVFAC Pacific Natural Resources management specialist. "These endangered species include the Hawaiian monk seal, which exists only in the Hawaiian Islands. Through our partnership with NOAA, we are able to reach more of the community and are better equipped to educate them on the importance of protecting and preserving Hawaiian monk seals, as well as other protected species found in the islands such as sea turtles or humpback whales.”

With an emphasis on a “Saving Energy Everyday” theme, the NAVFAC Hawaii Energy team generated awareness at their booth through educational poster boards and pamphlets on how to save energy at home and work, a question and answer beanbag toss game with prizes and demonstrations of energy saving tips.

NAVFAC Hawaii also hosted an archaeology booth, various living native plants, a recycling demonstration and also provided useful information on SPCC.

“The Earth Day Fair allowed our team to educate the public about energy conservation and how they can do their part to better our environment,” said Amy Hanada, NAVFAC Hawaii installation energy manager. “We provided hands-on demonstrations through a meter showing the difference between an LED and incandescent light bulb and also an advanced power strip demonstrating how to save on plug load energy. It’s encouraging to witness the crowd learn new things through our educational energy booth.”

More than 200 people attended the annual fair which included 17 booth participants, two energy efficient vehicles and a tour of the Clean Islands Oil Spill Response Vessel. The vessel’s purpose is to immediately respond to an oil spill emergency. The vessel is stationed on Oahu at Pier 35 and is available to assist any emergency 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
