(Kula) Have you ever wondered what a National Park Ranger does? Kids can come with their families to find out on April 23rd, National Junior Ranger Day at Haleakalā National Park.

Kids reading-age through 12 can earn a badge with their families, then meet our staff and the tools they use everyday at Hosmer Grove:

  • From 10am to 3pm meet the machine that keeps boulders off the park road and the rangers who use it, or get up-close and personal with a mule. Yes, some of our staff have four legs…
  • From 11am to noon meet the folks who keep the park safe. Blue-light special, hand-cuffs optional.
  • From 1pm to 2pm a helicopter will be standing-by to take your imagination up to spray invasive weeds (sorry, can't give real rides, but you might look good in a flight helmet)

Join us all week for free park entry and programs during National Park Week, April 16 – 23 and the Junior Ranger program is, as always, free to any keiki who convince their folks to drive up to the park. Kids, the 23rd is your chance to put yourself in our boots – and it is just a badge away. See you then!
