The triumphant return of Starbucks

Starbucks employees visited Mount Rainier last year to help with several projects, and made a hugely positive impression on our park trail crews and SCA crew leaders. We were pleased to welcome the employees of Starbucks back on the weekend of August 9-10, and they did not disappoint us! Here's a set of photos from their visit. The crew built trail and bridges along the Westside Road and collected seeds for our revegetation program. They were assisted by students from our Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program, which has been coordinated and supervised this summer through our partnership with the Student Conservation Association.

By the way, Starbucks also donated $170 to support our partnership with SCA... along with 60 pounds of coffee and several cases of tea! We love you, Starbucks employees!
