The Everett Mountaineers is a branch of The Mountaineers, the premier outdoor recreation club in the Pacific Northwest.. Our volunteers offer many activities and quality courses, usually in smaller groups than the Seattle branch. (Learn about The Mountaineers). Our branch is known for its more than 100 years of camaraderie and passion for the outdoors. And we have a great history of stewardship, particularly lookout maintenance and trail work.
Recently we had success with the Alpine Lakes Additions (December 2014). Groups like Washington Wild are now focusing on legislation to protect the first new Wilderness on Olympic National Forest in 30 years. It will also be the first ever Wild and Scenic River designations on the Olympic Peninsula. The Wild Olympics Campaign garnered support for legislation introduced in 2012 and 2014 by Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Derek Kilmer. This will protect intact forests and free flowing rivers, while preserving and enhancing recreational access. The presentation will include a short clip from the PBS show "This American Life" about this campaign.
Members, guests, and the general public are invited to join us on the first Wednesday of each month (except July & December). Meeting are held in Snohomish County East Administration Building, 3000 Rockefeller, in Everett. Room F107, Public Meeting Room on the 1st Floor of the Bob Drewel Building. South East corner. Come in the main doors (Wall St. and Oakes St.) head south and veer left at the bottom of the stairs.
The branch has these awards given every year at the annual awards banquet.
The Mountaineers started in 1907, and Everett had the first official branch in 1911. One of the first ascents of the branch was Whitehorse Mountain in 1913.
