Flowing Lava from 2017

Flowing Lava from 2017

Founded in 1916, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is among the crown jewels of the National Parks Service. It is both a UNESCO International Biosphere Reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Park is over 500 square miles large – almost half the size of Rhode Island – and over half of that is further protected as the Hawai’i Volcanoes Wilderness Area. There are hundreds of miles of trails through this constantly changing and unique environment.

Kīlauea volcano erupted constantly from 1983 to 2018. All volcanic activity has ceased as of summer 2018. However, the only real constant on Kīlauea is change. No one knows what the future holds. Read about the Recovery Effort.
