The Office of Maunakea Management merged with Maunakea Support Services in August 2020, creating the Center for Maunakea Stewardship, which is responsible for UH-managed Maunakea lands. Please visit the center's website for more information. The migration of OMKM information to the Center for Maunakea Stewardship site is expected to be completed by the start of 2022.

Maunakea Rangers

Shortly after its founding in the fall of 2000, OMKM established the ranger program to provide daily oversight of activities on UH managed lands; to protect the resources and to provide for public safety. A key responsibility is informing visitors about the cultural, natural and scientific significance, as well as the hazards of visiting the mountain.  They conduct daily patrols between mid-level (9,200') facilities and the summit. Patrol reports are submitted daily.

Rangers perform a variety of other duties including providing emergency assistance, assisting stranded motorists, coordinating litter removal, conducting trail maintenance, inspecting the observatories for compliance with their Conservation District Use Permits, and providing visitors with cultural information about Maunakea.
