We are still looking to sign-up volunteers to carry lanterns for the "Shadows of the Past" living history presentation on Saturday, August 22 at Longmire. Contact Anne_Spillane(at)nps.gov if you want to help with the 8:30 PM, 8:50 PM, 9:10 PM, or 9:30 PM walk (please specify your preference).
Volunteers and staff in costumes will portray important individuals from the park’s past. The early story of Mount Rainier and the National Park service from 1883 through 1916 will be told. Lead Rangers will guide groups along the Trail of the Shadows in Longmire. Historical figures will emerge from the darkness while volunteers with lanterns illuminate the scenes! Each program lasts about 80 minutes.
