2 national parks on Hawaii island are back in business

HONAUNAU >> With the federal government shutdown resolved for now, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park and Pu‘uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park resumed regular operations Saturday.

Volunteers from the Hawaii Pacific Parks Association had been helping at the visitor center at Pu‘uhonua o Honaunau, a sacred place of refuge for kapu breakers, during the lapse of appropriations caused by the 35-day shutdown.

A National Park Service statement said “employees are happy to be back at work, serving the American people and welcoming visitors to their national parks.”
