Learn more about the environment and the human history that connected the people of Hawai‘i so powerfully to their ‘āina, on either of two occasions: Monday evening, June 25, or the following afternoon, June 26 at the Lyman Museum and Mission House in Historic Downtown Hilo!

Many people think of our iconic Park as the home of breathtaking natural resources, including plant and animal life, calderas and steam vents and lava tubes, and Madam Pele in all her glory.  How many of us realize that it also includes a great number of remote—and usually unseen—archaeological sites?

Dr. Jadelyn Nakamura (Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) gives us a virtual tour of this amazing human landscape, through photos, from the mountain to the sea.

She covers the early settlement of the lands of Kīlauea, how people lived and traveled there, where they settled and grew their crops … and underscores the role and mission of the National Park Service in protecting and preserving these resources.

Free to Lyman Museum members; $3 nonmembers.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for evening public programs. Limited seating; first come, first seated. Additional parking next door at Hilo Union School ON MONDAY EVENING ONLY.
