Volunteers needed to paint Ohanapecosh Amphitheater

After being closed last year due to budget cuts, the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center will be back open part-time this summer! A key part of restoring the evening campfire programs that have been such a tradition at Ohanapecosh will be repairing and repainting the amphitheater where they are presented. The projection stage, as you can see in this photo, is tattered and careworn from years of exposure.

Volunteers are needed!
We need 4-6 physically fit volunteers who can spend a day working with maintenance rangers to repaint the amphitheater and make it look fresh for the summer season.

Thursday, June 19, 2014 is the tentative date of this project; Friday, June 20 is our backup date if we can't find enough volunteers available on the 19th or if the weather is poor.

Please RSVP to Kevin Bacher at Kevin_Bacher (at) or 360-569-6567 if you can help on either June 19 or 20. We will provide tools and supplies, including brushes, stepladders, and paint; you wear clothes that can get dirty and bring a lunch and plenty of water. We'll make a campsite available to you for free at Ohanapecosh or any of our other park campgrounds, for the nights before and/or after the project.

Be part of restoring Ohanapecosh to its rightful status as one of Mount Rainier National Park's special places!
