On Aug. 11, 2021, Pu‘uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park will be closed.

The purpose of the closure is to carry out a resources management operation to remove feral goats. This action is being taken in cooperation with the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) to protect cultural and natural resources.

The park will remain closed for the duration of the operation which is expected to last all day. In preparation for the August 11 closure the public can also expect intermittent closures on the coastal trail from August 9-12 while the operation is set up. The park will reopen to normal operation on August 12 with the possibility of intermittent closure of the coastal trail. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” said John Broward, Superintendant.
