Kealia Pond visitors center closed for few months


The Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge visitor center on Maui is closing for a few months to address mechanical problems.

The refuge says problems with the ventilation and air conditioning system are making the building uninhabitable.

But the refuge will remain open for wildlife observation from 8 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.

Visitors will have access to the bird viewing area to watch hawaiian wetland birds and nesting hawaiian stilts and coots.

The Kealia Coastal Boardwalk is also open and accessible seven days a week from sunrise until 7 p.m.

The boardwalk provides many opportunities to observe Hawaii’s waterbirds.

The refuge is at Mile 6 of the Mokulele Highway. The boardwalk is on North Kihei Road between Kihei and Maalaea.
