Volunteers needed to help move to new visitor center

Moving day is almost here!

On October 10, Mount Rainier National Park's brand new visitor center at Paradise will open to the public. The old visitor center will close on the evening of September 28, but the move will actually begin a week earlier.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO HELP WITH THE TRANSITION! Help us box up equipment and supplies and move it between the two buildings. Help us clean up, and build new furniture. Meanwhile, get a sneak peak at a magnificent new building!

If you can help, contact volunteer program manager Kevin Bacher (corrected), at 360-569-2211 ext. 3385, who can provide you with additional information and direct you to the project leaders.

Also needed: Meadow Rovers to help staff a temporary information desk in the "Old Station," and to patrol nearby trails to point visitors to where they can find assistance. This will be especially important on the weekend of October 4th if the weather is good!
