Armbands to wear over warm coats and jackets were made over the winter. However, it appears that our faithful snow rovers were so tired at the end of the day, they forgot to leave them in the Meadow Rover Office. If you are one of those, you are forgiven as we truly appreciate your help, but would you please return them to the Meadow Rover Office or bring them to the training sessions on June 12.

SR 706 and the towns of Elbe and Ashford are often referred to as the "Gateway to Mount Rainier." Help us keep our "front step" clean by joining a small task force of dedicated litter pickers: the Mount Rainier Volunteers' Adopt-a-Highway crew!
Per an agreement with Washington State Dept. of Transportation, our team goes out with long-armed grabbers and heavy plastic bags three times each year to patrol a two-mile section of SR 706. This stretch of road encompasses the Park's Tahoma Woods administrative facilities as well as the only good view of Mount Rainier along the highway. We want it to look nice for our visitors, so please consider joining us for our next pick-up on June 26. For more information, contact Crow at email@example.com.
