VOICES OF THE NORTH CASCADES
Inspired by the stories told in the documentary The National Parks: America's Best Idea, North Cascades is using this opportunity to reflect upon itself as a national park.
What makes this place so unique? What are visitors surprised to learn about the North Cascades? What is it like to live and work in these mountains everyday? How do we welcome visitors to the North Cascades? What can we and the public do to protect this park for future generations?
Over the next several weeks, North Cascades staff will share their stories and experiences in the hopes of inspiring others to visit this park. From the first year intern to those that have been here since the park's creation in 1968, it is easy to hear the emotional connections that park staff have with these mountains.
Despite, or perhaps because of, such rugged wilderness, many passionate people call the North Cascades their home. Browse through these staff audio clips or subscribe to the podcast (coming soon). Click the link to open the audio file in a new window. Download time varies.
