Haleakala will be hosting a morning Coffee with the Ranger program in honor the PBS release of America’s Best Idea (a documentary about the National Park Service) and National Public Lands Day. Rangers will serve coffee in commemorative mugs every day at the Summit Building from Monday September 21st through Sunday September 27th at 6:15 A.M.  On September 26th entrance fees will be waived for all visitors to the park. The program is free to the public with your entrance permit to the park ($10.00 fee.).

Visitors can come talk story with Haleakala Park rangers over coffee about the history and culture of the park service, park programs and policies, the future of National Parks, and ways that the public can get involved in the management of their park.

 “We are excited to just chat over a cup of coffee with the public.”  said Doug Ridley lead presenter for the program. “This is a great opportunity to share stories and ideas and continue to build connections between people and Haleakala”

The program will begin serving coffee after sunrise at 6:15 am and will begin the talk story session at 6:30 am.  On Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th there will be second additional program at Hosmer Grove.  We will start serving coffee at 9:45 am and will start the program at 10:00 am.  We hope you come out to share your stories and thoughts with us.  The park will provide coffee, mugs, sugar, and creamer.  All you need to bring is warm clothing and stories & questions to share.
