MRNPA Work Parties for Summer 2013

On April 27th, the MRNPA has a great day planned on the Tahoma Woods Trail. This 1.3 mile loop trail, used extensively by residents and NPS personnel and Education Center activity groups, is in need of attention due to vegetation overgrowth along the trail corridor. The day’s project priorities include the removal of encroaching vegetation, downed trees and other debris from the corridor. In addition to Park Headquarters, Tahoma Woods is also the location of the greenhouse facility where the seedlings for the meadow restoration program are grown. Sometime during the volunteer day on April 27th, the group will have the opportunity to visit the greenhouse.

The group will be staging at the Tahoma Woods housing area tennis court between 8:30 and 9:00 AM. From Elbe, take SR 706 3.5 miles toward Ashford. At the Park Headquarters sign, turn in and then take the first right. Proceed straight ahead to the tennis court.

If you plan to attend this April 27th trails work party, please respond by email to to let the supervisor know you are coming. Please provide the number of volunteers who will accompany you. If you have your own hard hat and/or safety glasses, you are asked to bring them. Safety equipment will be provided for those who do not have their own.

Future MRNPA projects include trail work projects on May 18, June 15 and August 10, removal of exotic plants on July 13 and a revegetation project at Sunrise on September 7. If you are interested in participating in any or all of the above activities, please contact or visit MRNPA's website at
