Volunteers Vital to Park Repair

Exerpted from The News Tribune:

Even after a record number of people volunteering at Mount Rainier National Park, the need in 2008 will be nearly as great. There will be plenty of projects, large and small, that will need the same muscle, sweat and effort that dug new stretches of the Wonderland Trail, carried culverts and bridge material, cleaned campgrounds, and patrolled the meadows at Paradise and Sunrise. "We won't have the dire need for volunteers next year, but the opportunities for people to come in and play an active role in their national park will be there," said Kevin Bacher, the park's volunteer program coordinator.
