Thank You, Volunteers!

WTA will likely break 80,000 volunteer trail work hours again this year, which is a fantastic accomplishment!

To all who lent a hand swinging Pulaskis, trimming brush, and moving stones, thank you.

I was recently at the Seattle Volunteer Appreciation event at REI, and it was so inspiring and fun to see that room jam-packed with happy volunteers. They were treated to food, raffle prizes, and some humor from our local WTA comedian (and crew leader) Mike Owens. More than a few land managers from the Forest Service, National Park Service, Washington State Parks, and King County all expressed their gratitude for a job well done.

Our volunteers do outstanding work. Thanks!

The Seattle event is just the first of three Volunteer Appreciation events. We'll also be thanking all who volunteered on the Olympic Peninsula and in Southwest Washington....please join us!

Join us in Vancouver at 5 p.m. Sat. Nov. 22 at the Marshall Community Center. Find more info and RSVP here.

Or join us in Quilcene at 1 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Quilcene Community Center. More info and RSVP here.

Hope to see you out working on our trails again in 2009!
