Holua campground and cabin located in the Summit District of Haleakalā National Park will be closed today and tomorrow (December 10-11, 2012).

Biologists will be conducting work to control an infestation of Argentine Ants, an invasive species from South America that impacts native insects and plants.

Park officials say the public’s understanding is appreciated while staff work to sustain the native ecosystems of the area.
