Vote Mount Rainier!

We have much to celebrate this year! Not only is 2016 the centennial of the National Park Service, it is also is the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Since it was passed in 1966, the National Historic Preservation Act has helped protect and preserve places of value to the American people. In recognition of this, we encourage you to think about historic sites important to you to safeguard for the future.

At Mount Rainier National Park, with the passage of the Act as inspiration, we are looking to rehabilitate a historic cabin in the Longmire area. Built in 1936 in the ‘NPS Rustic Style’, which incorporates design principles harmonious to nature, the cabin is now part of the park’s National Historic Landmark District. After restoration work is completed, the cabin will serve as a residence for Mount Rainier’s Search-And-Rescue volunteers.

Lend your support at ‪#‎VoteYourPark until July 5.
