When Kīlauea began erupting in May of 2018, it disrupted the operation of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, location of HPPA administrative offices and their two busiest national park stores.

This report tells the story of how they managed during a hurried park evacuation, the onslaught of daily earthquakes, a truly remarkable eruption of lava, and the “new normal” of their operations in support of national parks once Hawaiʻi Volcanoes reopened in late September of 2018.
