We receive lots of great ideas, so please search the forum first before adding a new one.

Please note that all our courses, events, trips, course-related activities, clinics, seminars, and lodge stays have feedback forms so that you give feedback for everything in which you participate.

  1. More Naturalist Articles

    Wildlife photography especially is effective at stretching newcomers to the outdoors beyond climbing and running.

    Thanks for the suggestion. As a nonprofit and volunteer-led organization, all content is contributed on a volunteer basis and is a reflection of the interests and expertise of our membership. We do not currently have a wildlife specific photography group, however we do have an active photography committee which shares regular blogs about their trips. We also feature wildlife photography in a number of the books published by Mountaineers Books. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact the photography committee (https://www.mountaineers.org/locations-lodges/seattle-branch/committees/seattle-photography-committee) or you can volunteer to contribute your own wildlife photography content here: https://www.mountaineers.org/mountaineer-magazine/contribute).

  2. Magnuson South Wall Climbing Reservations

    This page has confused me a few times. The Seattle Park Department does not manage reservations. It would be nice to have updated information about the south wall here.

    Open public use?
    Any reservation system?
    Bolted?
    Check for exclusive reservations, where?

    Thanks!

  3. View PDF files stored on the website in the browser

    Allow PDF (and other browser viewable files) to be viewed in the browser.

    The Seattle Sea Kayaking Committee is storing minutes as PDF documents. When you click on the file name (blue) what happens depends on the browser you are using. Some browsers (Firefox) allows the user to choose to download or view in a browser window. Other browsers (Safari and Chrome on Mac) always download the file.

    If I just want to view the file, having it downloaded to my computer is inconvenient. Now I must navigate to the downloaded file, open it, and later decide if I want…

  4. Ptarmigan winter observations request

    Goat Peak above Mazama had Ptarmigan in the 1980s when I used to lead cross-country helicopter assisted ski tours. The single nature article in the winter issue of the Mountaineer Magazine, which I get online so it's hard to read, requested this feedback. As a retired national park ranger-naturalist and heli-ski guide, of course I appreciate almost any nature content, and encourage more.

    Thank you for your support of the ptarmigan and citizen science efforts. While directly working with scientists is outside of the scope of our mission, we are happy to promote these efforts when possible. For that reason we published the ptarmigan citizen science article in our Winter 2020 issue of Mountaineer. That article was also turned into a blog which now lives on our website: https://www.mountaineers.org/blog/citizen-science-white-tailed-ptarmigan-ghost-birds-of-the-winter-cascades. A link to the blog is cross posted in our Virtual Education Center as well to continue to encourage people to engage: https://www.mountaineers.org/courses/virtual-education-center#conservation-advocacy.
