Q: How do you manage 30,183 acres of public land that range from 10,023 feet to sea level?
A: Very carefully!
If you want to know the details, management documents will be available here online in August 2006 for your reading pleasure.
Fortunately we have park partners who help Haleakalā National Park accomplish the many tasks needed to take care of these special resources - check out some of these like The Kīpahulu Ohana, The Hawaii Pacific Parks Association, The Nature Conservancy, The Friends of Haleakalā National Park, Maui Invasive Species Committee, Leeward Haleakalā Watershed Restoration Project, Hawai'i Conservation Alliance, and The East Maui Watershed Partnership.
Established in 1916, Haleakalā National Park now protects 30,183 acres of land on the island of Maui. Within the park 24,719 acres are designated as a Wilderness Area and this land is managed under the Wilderness Act of 1964.
