This is BIG news!  Our donation of $2 million to the National Park Foundation over the next 10 years will fund crews that will camp out at the parks for 8 weeks each summer, repairing trails, clearing debris and creating drainage. We spent some time over two days getting to know the crews that will be working the Wonderland Trail at Mt. Rainier National Park and the Enchanted Valley Trail at Olympic National Park.  The crews will help chug through a maintenance backlog that has plagued both parks for years, allowing them to spread their thin resources more effectively.  The crews are a diverse group of youth from Boys and Girls Clubs, college students, tribal members and military veterans.  Spending time in the outdoors is intended to bring them together, teach them skills, and let them earn a little money at the same time.  The local newspaper did an excellent writeup
