CELEBRATING A LIFE

Since 1991, Flash Parlini volunteered within Mount Rainer National Park on almost every free weekend that he had, all throughout the year, all while maintaining a full time and successful career as a flight engineer with the Boeing Corporation.

Flash was, first and foremost, a backcountry ranger. He loved getting out into the wilderness and protecting its values.Throughout all that he did and accomplished for the park, Flash remained extremely humble. You would never know when first meeting him how much he had accomplished over the years.

THANK YOU. During the past year, you’ve funded MANY of the parks’ 2016 priority projects. The parks are so grateful for your philanthropic support. Our work continues in 2017! Superintendents worked with our team to deliver their priority projects for 2017.

Dark skies allow us to observe the cosmos and where we fit within it…With dark skies, you’ll see the Milky Way, more shooting stars, and faint satellites crossing the skies. We have an opportunity to significantly enhance the dark skies over Olympic National Park. You can help us make that happen. — Sarah Creachbaum, Superintendent, Olympic National Park
