Park and community says farewell to Japanese volunteers

On August 30, Mount Rainier National Park employees and local community members gathered to say farewell to the Japan Volunteers-in-Parks Association (J-VIPA), a group that has contributed volunteer time and friendship to the park since 1994 and is now moving on to other projects. The event was featured in The News Tribune and the Eatonville Dispatch. Photos from the event, and from this year's volunteer project building picnic tables in the Longmire Campground, can be seen on the park's Flickr page.

Thank you, J-VIPA... you've enriched our park and our lives, and we wish you well!
