Mount Rainier National Park offers a number of volunteer opportunities each summer season. In addition to programs such as the Meadow Rovers, the park also works with partners on studies and programs that offer additional ways park supporter can help.
Here is a look at some of the opportunities available this summer:
PARK ROAD WORK
Visitors at Mount Rainier should be aware road work has begun for the season. The work includes repaving the roadway, utility line installation and improving the road base. Drivers should expect delays of up to 20 minutes Mondays-Fridays.
This is the second year of the first phase of a $32 million project that will improve 17 miles of the park’s busiest road.
