MRNPA 2014 Schedule

This coming year, Mount Rainier National Park Associates will be conducting six volunteer work parties at Mount Rainier: four days of trail maintenance and two days we think of as "alpine gardening", i.e., weeding and planting.  MRNPA invites you to join us for a day or two of volunteer work, donating your time and effort, and enjoying the company of a group of people who love this amazing park. Please join us on any or all of the following dates. The actual locations will be determined by park staff about two weeks before the volunteer work party.

Saturday April 26: trail maintenance (a great day to get that first spring outing at Mount Rainier).

Saturday May 17: trail maintenance.

Saturday June 14: trail maintenance.

Saturday July 12: exotic plant removal (weeding). It may seem crazy but this is a very fun and popular work party.

Saturday August 9: trail maintenance.  This volunteer work party will be followed by a pot luck dinner and an overnight campout for the volunteers who have worked that day.  This is a great weekend at the Park and a chance to get to know the volunteers who work with you.

Saturday September 6: planting wildflower seedlings to re-establish alpine meadows in a former campground near Sunrise.

I hope to see you on one or more of our volunteer work parties.
