Meadow Rover Coordinator Maureen McLean Returns!

Greetings, Meadow Rovers!

I’m back and looking forward to seeing each of you back on The Mountain. The Meadow Rover program is up and running as fast as I can read through all of the e-mails, plan the training programs, and find our supplies. Meadow Rover training is scheduled for June 21st and 22d. Saturday the 21st, we will be meeting at the Education Center at Park Headquarters following the morning training for the MeadoWatch program. Saturday’s afternoon session will be primarily for new Meadow Rovers but all are welcome. On Sunday June 22d, we will be meeting in the Community Building at Longmire for the Advanced Training sessions. Training on this day will be for old hands along with our new volunteers. I will have more information for you as I finalize plans. It would be most helpful if you would e-mail me your plans to attend at MORA_MEADOW_ROVERS(at) Camping will be available at the Longmire campground, but you will need to reserve a spot. Use the above e-mail to make your reservation.

Last summer, several of our Meadow Rovers also volunteered with the MeadoWatch program and easily combined both programs on the same day. For more information on this program, see MeadoWatch Program. As of today, the MeadoWatch training is full for the 21st, but there are two additional opportunities on June 5 or June 7 at the University of Washington. For more information, contact


HELP! We need as many of our trained Meadow/Snow Rovers to help at Paradise this holiday weekend. If you are able, please e-mail me at either MORA_MEADOW_ROVERS(at) or Maureen_Mclean(at) . Sledding is finished for the year, but that doesn’t mean the general public is aware of the potential damage to themselves or the environment. Tree wells are gaining in size and small trees are starting to work their way out of the snow. Snow covered rocks and streams are also dangerous. It will be a weekend of education, so come on up!
