Centennial Initiative 2016
On August 1, 2016, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park also celebrates its Centennial anniversary. In commemoration of this event, the park is producing a series of publications on the history and culture of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. The subject matter of these periodicals varies from early pre-park history and the people who forged its establishment, to philanthropic associations that have had a profound positive impact on park operations, public outreach and education. Future publications will spotlight the park's museum art collection, historic preservation, archeology, and the native Hawaiian voice and perspective on Hawaiʻi Volcanoes Park, amongst other topics.
We are in the process of updating this webpage, so check back soon and see what exciting plans have developed for the park's Centennial celebration!
