NPS/HALE   Haleakala Conservation Biology Field Station   USGS/BRD/PIERC/HFS

The Haleakala Conservation Biology Field Station (HCBFS) is a short-term residence facility for visiting researchers. HCBFS was built with funds obtained by The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii, maintained by Haleakala National Park, and managed by the Research Scientist for the Haleakala Field Station of the USGS/BRD. It is located at 6800 ft (2100m) elevation just inside Haleakala National Park on East Maui (Hawaii, USA). Its purpose is to provide low-cost (but nice!) short-term housing for research scientists working in or near Haleakala National Park. Facilities include ; full kitchen; hot showers; and washer & dryer; and warm*, clean, dry beds (*yes, WARM is a consideration at 6800 ft, even in Hawaii!).

NOTE RE: "community" items: Consumable goods are generally NOT community property (you must bring your own). We sometimes have a few "leftover" NONPERISHABLE food items like flour, spices, etc. (Call if you need specific information.) However, if you wish to use consumable kitchen supplies such as dishwashing liquid, food wraps, etc. as "community property," we ask that you contribute one item that's low in stock. We can always use plastic wrap, wax paper, ziplocs, and dishwashing liquid, aluminum foil, scrubby sponges. (P.S. - Laundry soaps, etc. are generally NOT shared; please bring your own!)
