During 2015 Mount Rainier National Park Associates will be conducting six volunteer work parties at Mount Rainier: four Saturdays of trail maintenance work and two Saturdays “alpine gardening”. The Volunteers invite you to join them 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 the Volunteers 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 25: Trail maintenance (a great day to get that first spring outing at Mount Rainier)
May 16: Trail maintenance
June 13: Trail maintenance
July 11: The Deveg (exotic plant removal, also known as weeding, but a surprisingly fun Saturday)
August 15: Trail maintenance during the day, followed by a pot luck dinner, and an overnight camp for the volunteers who have worked that day
September 12: The Reveg (planting wildflower seedlings to re-establish alpine meadows)
