Mount Rainier National Park Associates sets 2015 schedule

During 2015 Mount Rainier National Park  Associates will be conducting six volunteer work parties at Mount Rainier: four Saturdays of doing trail maintenance and two Saturdays doing "alpine gardening".   We invite you to join us for a day or two of volunteer work, donating your time and effort, but also enjoying the amazing place that is Mount Rainier National Park and the company of people who love that place.
Please mark your calendars to join us on any, or all, of the following dates [subject to change!].  The locations will be determined by park staff about two weeks before the volunteer work party.
April 25th  trail maintenance (a great day to get that first spring outing at Mount Rainier)
May 16th   trail maintenance
June 13th  trail maintenance
July 11th   The Deveg  (exotic plant removal, also known as weeding, but a surprisingly fun Saturday
August 15th  trail maintenance during the day, followed by a pot luck dinner, and an overnight camp for the volunteers who have worked that day
September 12th  The Reveg  (planting wildflower seedlings to re-establish alpine meadows)
I hope to see you on one, or more, of these MRNPA volunteer work parties.
