Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is pleased to offer three opportunities to make a difference in the park on NPLD. Two stewardship projects (in four areas) and one educational opportunity will be available and fees are waived for the day.
- In three areas of the park volunteers will be removing invasive species focusing on the non-native Himalayan ginger which chokes out native forests. Participants will use loppers to cut the stalks of ginger at the base while enjoying the native species they are rescuing.
- A trash pick up will be held on the roadside on Highway 11 that runs through the park. Please meet ranger Nainoa Keana‘aina at Mile Marker 40 to begin.
- A four-mile guided hike to learn about the unique ecosystem at the summit of the erupting volcano, Kīlauea.
Come prepared with good closed-toe footwear, water, rain jackets, sunscreen and hats to protect yourself from the variable weather at the summit of Kilauea. It can be rainy and cold or sunny and hot. Long pants are recommended.
