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.


Note: Closed Captioning on videos can be turned off and on by clicking on the "CC" button on the bottom of the viewer window.

Want to get involved? Ecological restoration would be impossible without the many volunteers that help with collecting seeds, growing seedlings, and planting in the park's subalpine meadows. Volunteers also participate as Meadow Rovers, a program to educate visitors about the delicate subalpine environment and reduce meadow damage.
