HVPN Offers Halloween Scavenger Hunt
Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park is offering family events this Halloween weekend.
Those interested may visit the pop-up tent at Kīlauea Visitor Center near the bus parking area on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or go to Kahuku on Sunday, Oct. 31 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and pick up a Halloween scavenger hunt bingo card. Participants can then explore the trails with family, and if you get bingo, return to the tent or the visitor contact station for a treat bag provided by the Hawaiʻi Pacific Parks Association.
If you have a fourth grader in the family, park entrance is free.
Complete the online activity on www.everykidoutdoors.gov and print the paper voucher to bring to the park in exchange for a fourth grade pass. Everyone in your car gets in with you for free. This pass provides free access to fourth grade students and those accompanying them to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas until the end of August 2022.
Can’t make it Halloween weekend? Fourth graders are eligible for the Every Kid Outdoors pass throughout the year. Families without fourth graders are also welcome to attend – park entrance fees or passes will apply at the Kīlauea summit area; Kahuku is always free.
Note to teachers and home-schoolers: Would you like a park ranger to visit your classroom virtually? Rangers are ready with distance learning programs. The park can tailor the program to your curriculum needs and do a virtual huakaʻi (voyage) on location from the park. Send an email to [email protected] to set it up.
