to Lorin Gill
I was granted the gift of being able to hike many trails under Lorin's
Some were with him when he was the Outings Leader pointing out
invasive species, tiny tree snails, and all sorts of other flora and
fauna I would otherwise have missed.
On other forms of trails he provided wisdom, guidance, and discipline
as our Chapter grew from a few people operating out of a small office
on the grounds of the Bishop Museum to the strong organization it has
Lorin was especially visionary in recognizing the importance of
engaging young people in the cause of conservation, and doing so by
direct contact with the outdoors. He created
and nurtured the High School Hikers Program, and graduates of
that program are now important leaders in today's conservation movement.
He was a pillar of he Chapter, and will be sorely missed.
Mahalo and Aloha, Lorin.
