MRNPA Announces 2016 Work Parties

It's time to start thinking ahead to summer! Mount Rainier National Park Associates has released the dates for their summer Saturday work parties.

During 2016, MRNPA will be conducting six volunteer work parties at Mount Rainier, consisting of four Saturdays of trail maintenance and two Saturdays "gardening in the Park." Please mark your calendars to join us on any or all of the following dates. The locations will be determined by park staff about two weeks before each volunteer work party.

April 30 - trail maintenance (a great day to get that first spring outing at Mount Rainier)
May 21 - trail maintenance
June 18 - trail maintenance
July 16 - "deveg" (exotic plant removal)
August 13 - trail maintenance during the day, followed by a pot luck dinner and an overnight camp for the volunteers who have worked that day
September 10 - "reveg"  (planting wildflower seedlings to re-establish alpine meadows)

I hope to see you on one, or more, of these MRNPA volunteer work parties.
