Wild Skills partnered with Mt Rainier National Park and Y.E.T.I. to take 32 girls, ages 6-16 on an interpretive snowshoe hike from Paradise on Mt Rainier, November 13th. Many of the girls had never been on snowshoes or on Mt Rainier. Each group was lead by a park ranger and helped by SheJumps volunteers. Interactive games were used to teach facts about the mountain and it’s environment.
Building snow volcanos, playing musical devices to simulate the sounds and cycles of the mountain, and making snow angels were just a few of the activities. A sack lunch picnic on the slopes rounded out the day and fun was had by all!
