The dam breaks

As you may have notice, it's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog. It isn't because nothing has happened--on the contrary, so much has been going on that I haven't had time to squeeze in a blog entry! With the help of a few assistants (thank you, Hilary and Kaila!) I am beginning to finally catch up. Watch this space, over the next week, for lots of new news: New volunteer opportunities; new partnerships; news from past volunteers; several exciting outreach events that are coming up; even a major new grant announcement. Happy reading!

Let me start by introducing you to two names you'll hear more of this month and in coming months. Kaila Johnston is a seasonal member of Mount Rainier National Park's revegetation crew, who is working as a volunteer this month and next before her summer job starts. She's helping me this month to catch up on volunteer paperwork, including logging in new volunteer agreements and hours and responding to correspondence.

Meanwhile, Hilary Gaddis arrived on April 5, and will be working with us through September to develop our Camping Adventures program. More about that in a future blog entry; but suffice it to say that she's already incredibly busy setting up community partnerships, planning events, and recruiting participants.

Thank you, Kaila and Hilary, for all of your hard work, and for helping to make time for me to update you all on what's been happening with our program!
