Student group marks second year of volunteerism at Mount Rainier

From The News Tribune:

During the last two years, 3,254 volunteers from around the country contributed a total of 154,168 hours to Mount Rainier National Park, an association news release said. That effort was valued at more than $3 million, park officials said. Volunteers worked on rebuilding the Wonderland Trail, restoring habitat, campgrounds and historic structures, carrying supplies to backcountry project locations, patrolling trails and assisting park visitors. The association also gave wilderness and project management training sessions to park staff and volunteers.
