Mount Rainier National Park will host its third annual Keep Wildlife Wild Day on August 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in an effort to educate visitors on wildlife and the impacts we have on them. The day will focus on protection and education to keep Mount Rainier’s wildlife wild.

The park will celebrate the day with a number of short educational programs in the Paradise area. Interpretive Rangers and Biologists will present talks on native wildlife throughout the day. Activities will be provided for children to explore the interesting world of wildlife through artistic
expression.

Join Mount Rainier in helping to keep wildlife wild!
