2-night cabin-stay service trip in Haleakala Crater
The Friends of Haleakala National Park are seeking volunteers for an overnight service project in Haleakala Crater over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, Saturday through Monday, January 13 to 15. The group will hike into the Crater on the Hale Mau’u, or Switchback, Trail and stay free for 2 nights in Holua Cabin, hiking out the third day. The middle day will involve work on protection of native plants. In addition to helping the national park, those volunteering will also have some time for hiking, bird-watching, star-gazing or photography as well as enjoyment of the quiet Crater wilderness.
The park entrance and cabin fees are waived for volunteers doing service work with the Friends of Haleakala National Park. A maximum of 12 persons can be accommodated on each trip, and participants must be physically fit and able to hike in and out of the Crater carrying a backpack with their sleeping bag, personal items, and a share of the food.
To join this trip, first visit and register your readiness at the website www.fhnp.org where more information about the Friends’ mission and work to preserve and protect Haleakala National Park can be found. Then email or call the trip leader listed on the website for a reservation.

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.
