  • 55. National Park ServiceU.S. Department of the Interior Mount Rainier National Park• Mount Rainier glacier free with modern flora to 5,500 feet for ca. 10,000 years• Mid to late Holocene replacement of open parkland habitats by more nearlyclosed forest communities• Earliest human use of upper elevation landscapes about 9,000 to 9,500 yearsago, consistent with early Holocene land-use onset• Increased fire frequency after 3,500 years ago; best explained by humanignition –arguably to retard forest cover in favor of more productive parklands
