Paradise Meadow Restoration

Paradise Meadow, the most heavily visited area of the Mount Rainier National Park, has been undergoing restoration since the 1980s. Funding for this project helped the park to realize completion of a plan developed 20 years ago to restore 918 social trails, totaling 28 miles.

As one of the most visited areas of the park, the Paradise Meadow requires native plant restoration to help maintain a vibrant ecosystem. Through greenhouse and in-park planting, both volunteers and local students learned about plant biology, human impacts to the meadow, revegetation, and greenhouse techniques.
