Washington Trails Association

Type: Short-term individuals and groups
Dates: June to Labor Day
Status: Now planning projects for 2010

Quick summary: Following the great floods of November 2006, Mount Rainier National Park formed a partnership with the Washington Trails Association to recruit and lead volunteer trail projects, especially on the Glacier Basin Trail. Since then, hundreds of volunteers have almost completely rebuilt that trail, which had been almost entirely destroyed by the flood. In additional to individual project days, WTA also schedules wonderful week-long "volunteer vacations" at locations throughout Washington state, including Mount Rainier.

For further information: Contact Trails Foreman Carl Fabiani, 360-569-2211 ext. 3351, and visit the website of the Washington Trails Association
To apply: Watch for work days to be announced on WTA's online project calendar, starting in June. WTA's "Volunteer Vacation" schedule will be announced online February 8, and these fill very rapidly.
