Wilderness Volunteers: 2017 Haleakala National Park (Hawaii) Service Trip
Haleakala is the largest dormant volcano in the world. This special place vibrates with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture and protects the bond between the land and its people.
Haleakala National Park was established within one week of the creation of the National Park Service and ranges through 5 distinctly different climates zones. The park cares for endangered species, some of which exist nowhere else, and includes seashore up to the summit, above 10,000-feet. The road to the Haleakala summit holds the world record for climbing to the highest elevation in the shortest distance (38 miles). The vast moonlike crater floor with its towering cindercones is a geological wonder. The summit area of the Park provides one of the top ten sites for night star viewing.
We camp at the work center next to the Visitor Center near the ocean, and help with the stewardship of this park including trail maintenance, removing invasive plants, and campsite restoration.
