For 110 years, The Mountaineers have been teaching skills, sharing adventuring, creating volunteers, and protecting the outdoor experiences. Founded in 1906 by 151 visionaries, The Mountaineers made recreation accessible to the masses and forever changed the way people thought about exploring. Conservation is a critical part of the organization as well. Early conservation efforts by Mountaineers members laid the groundwork for today’s Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park, and the many wilderness areas we can now access. And, The Mountaineers literally wrote the book on mountaineering. Learn more about The Mountaineers legacy here.
