Lava Tree State Monument and Mackenzie Rec. Area Closed

The Department of Land and Natural Resources says that the DLNR Division of State Parks has closed its Lava Tree State Monument and Mackenzie State Recreation Area until further notice.

Gates to these parks will be locked and closure signs posted.

“This action was taken after consultation with Hawai`i County Emergency and Parks and Recreation which recommended the closures due to earthquake activity in the Puna area,” a DLNR spokesperson says
