MRNPA Summer Schedule


Greetings,

Mount Rainier National Park  Associates will be conducting six volunteer work parties at Mount Rainier on six Saturdays during 2017.   Four of those Saturdays of doing trail maintenance work and two Saturdays we will be assisting a park  crew in doing "resource management".   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 some great people.

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 the volunteer work party.

April 29th - doing trail maintenance   A great day to get that first spring outing at Mount Rainier.
May 20th -  doing trail maintenance
June 17th - doing trail maintenance
July 15th   The Deveg  -  A day doing exotic plant removal (also known as weeding).  This is a surprisingly fun Saturday
August 19th - doing trail maintenance during the day, followed by a pot luck dinner, and an overnight camp for the volunteers who have worked that day
September 9th  The Reveg  - A day doing planting of wildflower seedlings to re-establish alpine meadows.  This may be at either Sunrise or Paradise.

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