Haleakalā National Park celebrates their annual Nēnē Awareness Day today, Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon at Hosmer Grove with an educational “Treasure Hunt” activity.

The event offers the opportunity to explore Hosmer Grove, learn about the world’s most endangered geese, and how you can protect them. Prizes and postcards are generously provided by the park’s cooperating partner, Hawai’i Pacific Parks Association.

The National Park Service sponsored self-guided “Treasure Hunt” will have participants find five stamps along the trail and stamp postcards provided by the park.

At the end of the activity, participants who share with park staff how to protect the nēnē will receive the “he kiaˋi nēnē au” pledge card and a prize.
