Carbon River Project
The Carbon River Road was heavily damaged in the November 2006 flood, and ecological protection structures such as engineered log jams have recently been installed in the Carbon area to help minimize damage to park facilities and roads in the future from flooding. This short film provides insight into the process of designing and building these unusual structures.
Chinook Entrance Arch Restoration Project
The Chinook Entrance Arch spans the width of the Mather Memorial Parkway (SR 410) at 5,432 feet on the northeastern boundary of the park. After nearly eight decades of use the Arch was in desperate need of repair, prompting Mount Rainier National Park to undertake a massive restoration project to preserve this historic structure.
Ecological Restoration involves replanting native plants in disturbed areas to help protect and restore Mount Rainier's delicate subalpine ecosystems. Learn more through a series of videos that follow the process from summer to fall.
