Titled «Lantern Tour: Walking Vancouver Barracks,» these new ranger-led programs will walk visitors through the grounds of Vancouver Barracks by lantern light, connecting attendees to the national park's military history through thematic storytelling.
These tours will be small in size, and each will feature a specific thematic focus rather than historical vignettes. They will require walking through grass and uneven surfaces at night and in in inclement conditions, including rain and mud. These tours also meet at the entrance gate to the reconstructed Fort Vancouver, 1001 E. Fifth St., start at 7:00 p.m.
Reservations are required for all Lantern Tours. To make reservations, prospective attendees can call the bookstore at the park's Visitor Center, managed by the non-profit Friends of Fort Vancouver, at (360) 816-6216. Learn more at nps.gov/fova/planyourvisit/lantern-tour.htm
