Volunteers Pick It Up!

Mount Rainier's Volunteers teamed up with the Department of Transportation last fall to adopt the stretch of State Route 706 between Milepost 2 and Milepost 4. We have contracted with them to perform three litter patrols annually. Following our first pickup, the DoT posted signs acknowledging our service at both ends of the designated area. Look for them as you drive up to the Park!

It's time to start thinking about our next patrol which is slated for Saturday, April 20. The date was selected to coincide with Earth Day, April 22. Volunteer Coordinator Crow is looking for eight to ten "litter pickers" who can devote a couple of hours to help out. We will be staging at Tahoma Woods at 9 AM. Following a brief orientation, teams will be dispatched with bags and grabbers. If you would like to participate in this community service come rain or shine, please email Crow at
