New $50,000 grant will help shape Rainier-Fuji Sister Mountain project

More volunteer news from The News Tribune:

"A $50,000 grant will be used to launch the Mount Rainier-Mount Fuji Sister Mountain Curriculum Project and Teacher Exchange Program.... 'This project will take the Mount Rainier-Mount Fuji Sister Mountain relationship to a new level,' said Mount Rainier park superintendent Dave Uberuaga."

Mount Rainier National Park's international relationship with Mount Fuji began with a summit rock exchange in 1935, and for forteen years has included an annual volunteer project by Japanese students through the Japan Volunteers-in-Parks Association.
