It's not too many national parks that will come to you, but that, essentially, is what's happening late this month when there will be a gathering at the REI store in Seattle to introduce folks to North Cascades National Park.
Not only will you be able to chat with park Superintendent Chip Jenkins, but there also will be rangers and representatives from The Mountaineers, the North Cascades Institute, the Washington Trails Association, and The Wilderness Society who will be able to discuss stewardship opportunities with you.
During the gathering you'll also be able to enter to win gear, North Cascades trips, and other prizes for your outdoor adventures, and enjoy refreshments. Preview the original KCTS 9 documentary, North Cascades: People, Places and Stories, which chronicles our connection with the land and how the North Cascades define us as a culture.
The event is Wednesday, May 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Seattle REI. No charge to get in.
