A wildflower guide was produced for the public, both in print and online, featuring 90 common alpine and subalpine species.
This guide enables the park to provide additional information to help educate and engage visitors to North Cascades National Park. The park doesn’t have the funding needed to station an interpretive ranger in the park to help educate visitors about wildflowers throughout the park.
With this guide, the park reaches out to a greater number of visitors than a single park ranger would be able to talk to, and in turn, creates a greater interest in the protection of this fragile piece of the North Cascades landscape.
