HAWAI‘I VOLCANOES NATIONAL 2 • April 17, 2016 PARK CENTENNIAL Centennial bridges past, future generation of visitors Aloha kakou! What a great honor to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park for our community with this special insert in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald. In the pages that follow, we hope you learn more about your national park. Although the park was established 100 years ago in 1916, Native Hawaiians were drawn to this landscape long before that and continue to come here for many different purposes. Our centennial logo captures the three elements that define Hawai‘i Volcanoes: the people, biology and geology with Hawaiian culture imbued in all three. Our international designations as a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, as well as our sister parks in China, South Korea and France, attest to the outstanding universal values of this special place and attract visitors from around the globe. I have worked for the National Park Service (also celebrating its centennial this year) for more than 45 years, and it is such a joy to come to work each day with such a dedicated and passionate team of employees and observe our local community so deeply involved with and appreciative of the park. Our centennial goal is to connect with and create the next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, and we cannot achieve that important mission without you. If it’s been a while since you’ve come to the park, the centennial year is the perfect opportunity for you to reconnect and “Find Your Park.” If you’re a regular visitor, 2016 is also an ideal time to explore new areas, hikes and programs. Much of what we do — from our free cultural programs and Hawaiian music concerts, our youth ranger internships, to our endangered species recovery efforts and more — wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support of nonprofit partners and volunteers. For decades, the Hawaii Pacific Parks Association, the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park and our legions of dedicated volunteers have enabled us to carry out important work. I encourage you to support their efforts and join their ranks! Mahalo for supporting Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, and I look forward to seeing you here in 2016.
