Secretary Salazar Visits Park Staff

Mount Rainier National Park

National Park News

On Tuesday, August 14th, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar paid a brief visit to Mount Rainier staff and shared words of encouragement and support in light of this year’s loss of five co-workers – Park Ranger Margaret Anderson and Climbing Ranger Nick Hall through line of duty deaths, and Custodial Worker Roy Watters, Engineering Equipment Operator Doug Chappell and seasonal Trails Laborer Ted Cox from illnesses or off-duty accidents.

The Secretary spoke on the importance of public service and the nobility of the mission carried out by National Park Service employees and volunteers on behalf of the nation.

Following the employee meeting, Secretary Salazar met with approximately 25 local tourism and community leaders and other park partners to discuss the economic benefits of national parks and the importance of local partnerships.

The Secretary took time for a photo op with the 70+ employees and volunteers, with Mount Rainier shining in the distance.
