Join us this Saturday, September 22, for National Public Lands Day! Mount Rainier National Park will celebrate the day with five volunteer projects open to public participation. No reservation necessary; just meet at Longmire in front of the old gas pumps (between the Museum and the National Park Inn) at 8:00 am to register. There are projects for all ages! All entrance fees are waived for the day, plus volunteers will receive an additional coupon for free admission on a day of their choice.
Volunteers should come prepared for any kind of weather, with warm clothing, rain gear, sturdy footwear, and gloves. Knee pads are also recommended for planting and weeding. If the weather is nice, sunglasses, sunscreen, and hats are recommended. Volunteers should also bring water, snacks, and a lunch.
