Join a Washington Trails Association trail work party and give back to Mt. Rainier National Park. The WTA schedules more than 600 work parties each year, contributing 80,000 hours of trail work to the US Forest Service, the National Park Service and other organizations. You don't need to have any prior experience (or be particularly strong) to join one of their Trail Teams - just sign up for a work party and they'll do the rest.
Volunteer with the WTA.
At Mt. Rainier, volunteers help in almost every area of the park, from maintaining trails to leading guided hikes.
