Active Bee Swarms on Pali Trail
Bee hives and swarms have been observed in the vicinity of switchback 26 on the Pali (cliff) Trail. Additional hives may be along the trail. Hikers should be observant of their surroundings and exercise caution.
One of the favorite pastimes at Kalaupapa is to gather at the General Store and talk story! Many imaginative and colorful stories about Kalaupapa have been passed down through the years, both orally and written. The new NPS Curatorial Storage Builidng was completed in 2005 and provides protection and climate-controlled storage for the multitude of archival records and oral histories gathered throughout Kalaupapa's history for future generation access.
