Sherpa Projects

Type: Short-term groups
Dates: Spring and summer
Status: Now accepting proposals from volunteer groups

Quick summary: "Sherpa Projects" are one of Mount Rainier's more unique volunteer opportunities. "Sherpa" volunteers pack supplies into backcountry settings for use by trail maintenance, wilderness patrol, revegetation, or backcountry maintenance crews. They can save the Park Service thousands of dollars in helicopter fees, while enjoying a strenuous physical workout in a beautiful wilderness setting!
