Never visited Mount Rainier before? No problem! Ask about our public outreach program. Our park rangers can meet you in your school or community center to do presentations, and can help set up a unique adventure for your group at the park itself, which may include hiking, activities for children or families, storytelling around the campfire, or even overnight camping. Learn all about the Mountain in your back yard! Contact Outreach Program Manager Kevin Bacher at 360-569-6567 for details.
