Three Hawaiian national parks will waive entrance fees on Monday, Aug. 25, in honor of Founder’s Day.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park on Hawaii Island, and Haleakala National Park on Maui, will be free to the public on Monday.
The National Park Service will celebrates its 98th birthday on Founder’s Day, and entrance is free to all fee-charging national parks in the U.S.
At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a schedule of free ranger-led programs and guided hikes is posted daily outside Kīlauea Visitor Center and the Jaggar Museum by 9:30 a.m.
Visitors can enjoy more free-entry days in 2014: Saturday, Sept. 27 is National Public Lands Day, the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the United States; and Tuesday, Nov. 11, is also free, to honor Veterans Day.
