Meet at  0830 at Carbon River entrance to Mt Rainier National Park. (NOT the Ranger Station)  Parking is alongside the roadway, but limited.  Please do not block the turnaround area next to the Port-o-potties.  National Park pass is not required.  

There is no gas available past the town of Wilkeson.  There is no cell service past that point (approximately) either.  Be sure you are headed to the correct park entrance as "Google" does not always direct you to the correct one.

this clean up day is being managed in partnership with staff from the park.  you will be required to sign a Volunteer Agreement (for the day.) Specific tasks will be directed by the crew lead but will include clean up of branches, brush, debris, and possibly some light trail work such as trimming small branches or pounding spikes down into boards.  Tools provided.  you will not be asked to perform any work that you are uncomfortable with.  

Check "required gear" listing. You can go somewhat light on your 10E's but First Aid, mask, hand sanitizer, food, water, headlamp and appropriate clothes including rain gear necessary.  We will not be far from the main road/trail at any time and we will have radio contact with park dispatch.  

COVID protocols will be observed.  this means you must wear a mask IF you are within 6 feet of another person for 15 minutes or more.
