Here at DNR, we rely on volunteers for a number of things. Our wonderful volunteers help:
- Keep campgrounds and trailheads clean
- Keep our forests safe
- Build and maintain trails
- Provide stewardship and education in our natural areas
- So much more!
Head (North) West
This month, some of our northwest lands need your volunteer help in hiking, horseback riding, paragliding, and off-road vehicle (ORV) areas. If you’re looking to build some trail karma, work off some steam outdoors, or just lend a hand–we’ve got the event for you.
October 18 – Anderson Mountain
BURLINGTON: Join DNR, the Skagit Whatcom Island Trail Maintenance Organization (SWITMO) and other volunteers to complete trail maintenance on the Anderson Mountain portion of the Pacific Northwest Trail.
