2016 Funding Priority | Amount needed $123,798 | FUNDED
Funds will restore a historic Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) cabin in the Longmire Historic District to provide much-needed housing for volunteer search and rescue staff.
With more than two million visitors a year experiencing Mount Rainier’s trails, search and rescue teams are called into action at a moment’s notice to help and are critical to park operations.
Additional funding for this project is provided by American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Mount Rainier qualified for the grant as one of the top nine parks in the Partners in Preservation: National Parks campaign. The total amount required for the project is $218,000.
