Volunteer Assistant hired, now hiring volunteer coordinators

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our new volunteer program assistant, Nick Abel, who will be joining us in early May to help coordinate the volunteer program this summer! Nick comes to us from Issaquah; he has been pursuing studies in mathematics and computer science, but is interested in gaining some leadership experience in other fields. We're looking forward to working with him this summer. Nick will first attend volunteer training later this month at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. He'll be part of our program through October.

Meanwhile, we are still recruiting for volunteer coordinator volunteers or interns in four different program areas in the park: trails, maintenance, plant ecology, and citizen science. These positions have been advertised both as 16-week SCA internships and also as volunteer positions with flexible start and end dates. All four positions come with housing and training, and provide a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an exciting new volunteer program structure at Mount Rainier National Park.

To apply, follow one or more of the following links:
