Optional Post-Seminar Tour:  A post-seminar tour option is being planned for a tour and dinner at the Volcano National Park.  This will be a fun informal time to interact with other Zonta Members, share our Hawaii Island history and culture with Governor Debbie Angwood. The very active Halema’uma’u crater, an enormous steaming sulfur scented hole spanning 2,625 feet, in late December 2020, the Halemaumau crater lake water was vaporized as the crater filled up with red-hot lava. The lava lake remains and is estimated to be nearly 450 feet deep.  (Note: Not sure if Mauna Loa will still be erupting, it would be an added feature.)  Price and more detail to follow at a later date.
