Haleakala National Park Foundation Document - Draft for Public Review

A Foundation Document involves revisiting a national park unit's core mission and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. In this capacity, the Foundation Document, once finalized, will reestablish the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions at Haleakala National Park.
