Car Camping service trip at Kipahulu District, Haleakala Nat'l Park
The Friends of Haleakala National Park will sponsor a three-day, two-night service project at the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park August 17 to 19. Volunteers will be able to drive to within about 100 feet of the campsite. Preference will be given to those who can participate all 3 days; however, there may be room for those who can only participate on Saturday and Sunday. The work will involve planting and weeding in various places and helping at the plant nursery. No backpacking is required!
The group will have access to a shower, an outhouse and a kitchen. There is some room for sleeping in the bunkhouse, but some participants will need to bring their own tents. All will need to bring sleeping bags and sleeping pads.
The park entrance fee is waived for volunteers doing service work with the Friends of Haleakala National Park. Tools are provided by the park.

Stretching across east Maui, Haleakala National Park is home to Haleakala Crater, an active, but not currently erupting volcano, and Maui's highest peak. Rising over 10,000 feet above sea level, Haleakala's graceful slopes can be seen from just about any point on the island. Haleakala means "House of the Sun" in Hawaiian, and legend has it that the demigod Maui lassoed the sun itself from its summit to slow the sun's journey across the skies.
