New volunteer opportunities

Return visitors to this blog will notice the new calendar at the top of our page. We're trying out a new way of advertising and registering people for volunteer projects, so check it out and tell us what you think! In some cases, you'll simply see events listed that require no response on your part other than showing up; in other cases, we ask for an RSVP. In some cases, the text of the project will direct you to RSVP directly with the project leader, or to register on a partner website (such as that of the Washington Trails Association). And in some cases--soon, in most cases--you'll be able to sign up for a specific project on a specific date right here on your computer.

There will be many such opportunities posted soon. For now, let me direct your attention to two new ones:

Greenhouse planting: We're looking for help replanting at the greenhouse in preparation for restoration work at Paradise later this summer. This will happen from June 2 through July 15, and we'd like a commitment of at least three days if you'd like to help.

Education Intern: Our education program is looking to hire a full-time intern for a full year beginning July 1st, through the Student Conservation Association.
