Outreach for Camping

Two interesting article have recently appeared about a new program we're offering here at Mount Rainier as part of our Outreach program. Called "Connecting Youth and Families to Our Parks," it will provide opportunities for traditionally underserved audiences to learn about and experience camping at Mount Rainier National Park with their families, under the guidance of Brad Carlquist, one of our park rangers. Here are the links for more information:
