National Park Offers Free Saturday Hikes
The National Park of American Samoa will offer free ranger-led Saturday hikes from late-June through mid-September. Free shuttles will transport hikers from Pago Pago to the trails. Interested participants are required to sign up in advance.
These hikes provide participants with opportunities to experience their own local national park within lush tropical rainforests with vistas that overlook Tutuila. National park rangers will lead these hikes and share a variety of fun topics about the natural and culture wonders of American Samoa.
“We look forward to welcoming residents and visitors to their national park,” said Chief of Interpretation and Education Michael Larson. “These hikes begin our celebration of the National Park Service’s centennial celebration from now through 2016. It’s a chance for everyone to get outside to explore, connect, and find your national park.”
Space is limited to 28 participants per hike. Sign up is required by phone at 633-7082, ext. 22 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These Saturday hikes are made possible through the generous support of the national park’s non-profit partner—the Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association (www.hawaiipacificparks.org).
