Follow Mount Rainier's Ecological Restoration program through its season, from growing native seedlings in the greenhouse to planting in the fall at Sunrise and Paradise. The Ecological Restoration program also controls invasive plants in the park, and uses everything from rappel work to helicopters to protect the natural vegetation of Mount Rainier National Park and minimize human impact.
Native seeds planted at the Mount Rainier Greenhouse in early spring are now established and ready to be transferred from flats to individual pots. Evan Hayduk, Greenhouse Crew Lead, describes the transplanting process.
