Let's go to the movies!

In our first year of supporting projects within the Park, we funded the creation of a short film about the impact avian malaria is having on our native forest birds. The director David Ehrenberg, biologists Erika Kekiwi and Chris Warren, and the staff at Haleakalā National Park have worked tirelessly over the past year to put together an incredible 7-minute short film that highlights the plight of these birds and what could happen if we do not take action.This film premiered on Oahu on November 11th, as a part of the Mālama 'Āina Shorts Program. The film is coming to Maui for a screening at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center THIS SATURDAY, November 19th, at 4:30pm.Join us for this important release and share its story with your friends and family. Get your tickets and join us on Saturday at the MACC!

In other news, another funded project came to fruition last month, with 4 young women visiting from O'ahu for a stay in the Park as a part of Hawaii Girls Court. Girls Court is a program to help at-risk teen women in the juvenile court system. The young women who attended the Girls Court Haleakalā trip had successfully completed their necessary programming to be in attendance. At Haleakalā National Park, these young women were able to connect with the natural and cultural resources in addition to being exposed to career paths with the National Parks Service. Girls Court focuses on empowering girls to keep them from reoffending and has been a successful one, reducing recidivism by 47%.

It is even an email in November if we don't mention Giving Tuesday?With the end of the year rapidly approaching, we still have projects to fund that will make a difference for our park and community, like the two profiled above. We hope you will consider a donation to Haleakalā Conservancy, as we are still in our early days as an organization and intend to share the impact our projects are having year after year. Thank you for going all in to support Haleakalā National Park.
