Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been getting a lot of visitors over the past week.

Now park officials are asking for your help to shape its future.

The National Park Service just released its general management plan, wilderness study and environmental impact statement for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The plan lists three different approaches to protecting and managing park resources, using facilities, and providing a range of access and visitor experiences to meet the needs of local residents, off-island visitors and students.

From May 1 through June 30, you can weigh in on what you think is the best of three alternatives and provide feedback.Review the documents and provide comments online here.

The park will also host a talk story session at the Kilauea Visitor Center on June 10, 5:30-7:30 p.m., to answer questions and take comments.

In addition, a formal wilderness hearing will be held during this meeting to receive comments specific to the wilderness study.

Comments can also be mailed to Superintendent, Attn: DGMP/WS/EIS, P.O. Box 52, Hawaii National Park, HI 96718-0052.
