Mount Rainier National Park will not offer any Ranger-led field trips in 2023. Please check back in 2024 for more information about field trip opportunities. See below if you are interested in a Teacher-led trip or a program with park partner, Mount Rainier Institute.
Mount Rainier Institute
If you are interested in an instructor-guided trip to the park or nearby Pack Forest in Eatonville, WA, please visit the Mount Rainier Institute to learn more about their program offerings. Mount Rainier Institute is a program of University of Washington and offers day-long and residential environmental education programs in and near Mount Rainier.
Teacher-Guided Field Trips
Teachers may bring students to the park for field trips any time. For free entrance to the park, a representative from the school will need to fill out and email in the Education Fee Waiver form (linked below). Regardless of the time of year or weather conditions, everyone will have a more enjoyable and productive visit if they are well-prepared for the day. Check out these resources on our website to learn about weather, current conditions, road and facility closures and more.
