Laurie Ward, WNPF Executive Director, and Randy King, Mount Rainier National Park Superintendent, were interviewed by Gary Shipe on March 22nd, 2015. The interview aired on KQMV 92.5 FM (Movin’ 92.5) KLCK 98.9 FM (The New Click 98.9) AM 880 KIXI, and AM 1150 KKNW.

The reality is that the funding available at the federal level really hasn’t kept up with the needs, and the role of donations is growing in importance.
