Volunteers Protect Mt. Baker

Volunteers Needed to Help Take Care of Mount Baker

 

The Mt. Baker Ranger District is looking for volunteers to help educate day hikers, backpackers and climbers on four of the busiest Mt. Baker area trail systems; Heliotrope Ridge, Skyline Divide, Park Butte/Railroad Grade, Yellow Aster Butte, and Heather Meadows/Artist Point.

As a Mountain Steward volunteer you will receive training in low-impact recreational skills, natural history, and back country management issues.  You will then volunteer for three daytime shifts interacting with the public on trails with fellow Mountain Stewards.

Qualifications:  Volunteers must be 18 years or older with hiking and outdoor recreation skills.

(Exceptions can be made for High School students interested in participating.)

Timeline:  July 13– September 8, 2019

Volunteers are expected to attend trainings on Saturdays July 13th & 20st and commit to a total of three weekend days from July 13 – September 8, 2019.  A third optional training will be held on August 3th for those wishing to volunteer at Heather Meadows.
