Here’s our shout out to the volunteers who joined us at two work parties to celebrate National Public Lands Day last Saturday.

Volunteers and partners from the Center for Natural Lands Management joined us at the Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve just outside Olympia to remove scotch broom and gather Douglas Fir seedlings.

At our trail work party in the Yacolt Burn State Forest, volunteers and partners from the Jones Creek Trail Riders hardened trail surfaces, repaired water bars, hauled gravel, and brushed trails.

Volunteers and DNR: An enduring partnership 
Volunteers are an integral part of keeping our recreation areas safe and functional. In 2014, DNR’s dedicated volunteers donated more than 75,000 hours, making it the most productive year for our volunteers ever.
