Next Up: Cleaning up the Marsh property near Carbon River

Despite the fact that National Public Lands Day is now history, volunteer opportunities remain at Mount Rainier, especially through the month of October. Don't forget about our ongoing need for large numbers of volunteers to help revegetate the landscape around the Paradise Visitor Center. Here's another project coming up in the next few days:

On Friday, October 3, volunteers will help clean up the Marsh Property, a recent acquisition by Pierce County Parks and Recreation and part of the new addition to Mount Rainier National Park along the Carbon River. Pierce County staff members have been busy through the summer tearing down the old cabins and sheds scattered across the site. Now we need help hand picking all the scrap metal and timber lying on the ground to dispose of it in a dumpster on site. Volunteers need to bring their own work gloves and wear heavy work boots.

Here's the location:

Marsh Property
29004 Zavitski Road E.
Carbonado, WA 98323
