Citizen Scientists in Action!

In today's post, we feature photographs taken by Yonit Yogev, an Evergreen State College intern throughout the summer at Mount Rainier.  Among many, many, many, other things, Yonit worked very closely with the multiple Citizen Science programs we offer in the park.  Citizen Scientists are volunteers who donate their time and budding expertise to research scientists from all over the state by assiting in the collection of information from an array of sources, be it along a trail, deep in the backcountry, or even in the middle of the subalpine meadows of Paradise or Sunrise (GASP!).

Below are some of her pictures from the field.

Do you have any pictures that you took while volunteering at Mount Rainier?  If so, please share them with us!  Send pictures and stories to Ian Harvey ( and you may be featured on our Blog this winter!
