Mowich Lake exotic plant control day project
Daily Event: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Come spend a day helping to preserve native habitat. This series of 4 day-long events will be based at the Paul Peak Trailhead, just inside the park boundary on Hwy 165. Our work will consist of removing exotic plant species that threaten the native ground cover.
We will meet at the Paul Peak Trailhead at 10:00 on Tuesday, August 26 and work until 4:00pm. This project will continue daily and wrap up on Friday August 29. More detailed information will follow for those who register (registration closes a week in advance). Happy trails!
**Please note that Rainier volunteers receive free entrance to the park (tell the folks at the entrance that you're volunteering) and are welcome to camp overnight at our reserved group Ranger Site in the Cougar Rock Campground. Anyone under the age of eighteen requires parental permission before they're able to volunteer -- please contact us if your parent or guardian will not be with you the day of the project so that we can send you paperwork ahead of time.**
Mount Rainier National Park
Every year, hundreds of individuals contribute their enthusiasm and skills to help the National Park Service preserve and protect its natural and cultural resources, and to serve and educate its visitors. Volunteers help in almost every area of the park, from maintaining trails to leading guided hikes. The time commitment for volunteer work varies from one-day projects to full-time work extending over months or years. Both individuals and organized groups are welcome to volunteer, and opportunities are available both for highly skilled professionals and for families with little or no experience in land management. Consider joining our team! Your contribution of time and energy will help us to protect the magnificent natural and cultural areas entrusted to us, and you’ll go home with a sense of pride at having participated in something worthwhile. Mount Rainier is your national park!
