2012 marks the 25th anniversary of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) knighting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on Big Island as a World Heritage Site. With only 21 World Heritage Sites in the country, this outstanding park got its reputation from the 30+ years of constant active lava flow and the large amount of endemic species the land protects. With a continuous flow of lava since eruptions in 1984, Mauna Loa and Kilauea have added 500 acres of land to the Big Island.
Come join the free celebration this year on November 11th, and take part in a public special event for 25 years of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park as a World Heritage Site. Admission to the Volcanoes Park will be free, with other events leading up to this one, including a free cultural festival on July 14th and National Public Lands Day on September 29th. The park offers guests an array of onsite activities, including volcano tube exploration, hiking trails, views of steam vents, sea arches, volcanic calderas and craters, bubbling lava, Thomas A. Jaggar Museum (volcanology and observatory museum) and a visitor’s center with updated information on lava flows and other available activities.
