The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on Uēkahuna Bluff: A Legacy of Science

Perched high on the rim of Uēkahuna Bluff since the late 1940s, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has been the hub of research and monitoring of Hawaiian volcanoes. The Reginald T. Okamura Building, constructed in 1985 and the heart of the observatory, was damaged beyond repair during the earthquakes of 2018. Join Don Swanson, who has a 55-year association with the observatory, as he takes us through the science conducted at this remarkable facility and the legacy being carried into the future.

When: July 18 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
