Welcome 2013 Meadow Rovers

I would like to introduce myself as the new coordinator of the Mount Rainier National Park Meadow Rovers. While I have worked with many of you in the past as an Interpretive Ranger, this position is all brand new to me. As many of you have heard or read, there are some changes that have occurred particularily with regard to roving with/without a radio. Without a radio, our rovers are limited to a one-half mile range from the parking lot or Visitor Center. While this may not be as glorious as hiking the Skyline Trail, believe me, you are needed. At Paradise or Sunrise, there is a great amount of visitor use and education within a one-half mile radius. Meadow Rovers are in the front line for protecting our valuable resources, we need you!

Radios can be reserved by contacting either Jodie Hollinger-Lant ( ) at Sunrise, myself at ( ) for Paradise and Ohanapecosh, or the meadow rovers' e-mail ( ). On that e-mail, would you please let us know your start/end times, as often a rover may end at 2 p.m. and another could take out the radio from then until later? You may also give a preferred roving location, though this may need to be changed based on the number of rovers and the critical areas where they are needed.

Reserved radios will have a number attached to the person’s name. Please take the radio assigned to you. Non-reserved radios can be taken on a first come-first served basis. We are getting more radios as various departments loan their extras to us.

Please continue to make campground reservations through the email as it is monitored by several people.

As this is my very first ever blog...I am hoping all the links work! I have attached a link to the Paradise Rovers Calendar to help you plan the days you will rove. Please work through me to add or delete names. Jodie will have hers up and ready soon!

Thank you for all the work that you do, you do make a difference.
