Living History Training

Become a living part
of Mount Rainier's history!
September 11, 2010
8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Education Center at Tahoma Woods, Ashford, Mount Rainier National Park (click link for map)

Mount Rainier National Park is looking to develop a cadre of living history volunteers to research, develop and present living history programs in first and third person. Hoping to build on the popularity of the Shadows of the Past program, we have invited Living History Reenactor and Professional Storyteller Karen S. Hass to present a one-day workshop for staff and volunteers interested in exploring this medium of interpretation.

Subjects covered will include first and third person interpretation; costumes; how to research your character; storytelling; and more. There will be role playing and work in small groups. Come prepared to interact with your fellow participants.

While there is no other time commitment required beyond attending the workshop, our hope is that participants will work with park Interpretive staff to research, develop and present living history programs in the park. If you have a passion for the Mountain, an interest in history, enjoy dressing up and would like to perform for the many visitors of Mount Rainier, please contact Lee Snook by September 7th at or 360.569.2211 x 6043 to RSVP for this free training. Space is limited.

The volunteer campground at Longmire is available to participants of the workshop for the nights of September 10 and/or 11. Let us know when your RSVP if you plan to use this resource, in order to reserve a spot.
