Following the amazingly destructive winter season of 2006, The Mountaineers joined a coalition of outdoor groups to help with recovery at Mt. Rainier National Park. Assembling volunteer teams, donations and generating awareness, this coalition successfully helped repair many of the damaged roads and trails within the park. The work is ongoing.
The attached poster, given to the coalition by Ranger Doug Enterprises, is a reproduction of a classic WPA poster. These were produced between 1935 and 1943 and were designed to motivate citizens to take a greater interest in the outdoors, and by extension, their health and well-being. The Ranger Doug website has more background on this.
We thought you all would appreciate seeing this classic-style poster. It's nice to have The Mountaineers logo attached to something so beautiful and meaningful.
