During the government shutdown, Friends of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park today, and everyday are supporting Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.
The closure may be temporary, but the park will always need support. This time, more than ever, we need to stay involved.
What can you do?
- Become a Friends’ member or renew your membership
- Designate a donation to your favorite project/program
- Volunteer for future programs and events
We are also committed to providing alternative experiences for our members and visitors alike. Check out our upcoming institutes. All proceeds from our institutes support the park.
Unfortunately due to the government shutdown, the October 13 Free Sunday Walk-in-the-Park to Mauna Loa has been cancelled.
Stay tuned for replacement events.

Aloha Members and Friends
Unfortunately, due to the government shutdown, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park will be closed until further notice.
Because our office is located inside of the National Park, we will temporarily move to another location – outside of the park in Volcano, Hawaii.
OUR OFFICE IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS – we will maintain operations and we will continue to be staffed full-time!
We need to continue the critically important support of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Grant writing, program planning, fundraising and institutes on demand will still happen. Stay tuned for program changes.
Walks and restoration projects scheduled for later this month will not be cancelled at this time. If the government is still shut down, we will make alternative walk and restoration plans.
Don’t forget to visit our Facebook page – www.facebook.com/fhvnp for daily happenings, updates, member photos and more.
National Public Lands Day is on Saturday, September 28.
Entrance fees to Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park are waived – Great time to enjoy the park with your entire family.
Want to be part of a volunteer Forest Restoration Project instead?
Join the park and the Ocean View Community Association in controlling fountain grass along roadways in Hawaii Ocean View Estates. Fountain grass increases fire potential, and the park is working to prevent its spread in HOVE and keep it from establishing in the Kahuku unit. We will learn about the problems of fountain grass and its safe control from a member of the park’s Natural Resources Management team.

We want to thank our volunteers and everyone on the Forest Restoration Committee! The May 17 Forest Restoration Project was a great success.
The volunteers helped plant and mulch 60 understory plants to create a pocket forest to educate visitors. We hope to see you on other projects – the next one is June 15 ginger removal.
