Latina Trail Crew at Mt. Rainier

Event Description:

The Latina Trail Crew is comprised of 6 youth and 2 leaders who will be spending a week engaging in stewardship and care of Mt. Rainier National Park. Youth participants will be paid a $150 stipend for their work, and are receiving stoves and mess kits for future adventures courtesy of MSR.

In 2017, the crew built trails, explored rivers and had difficult conversations about diversity in the outdoors. All nine girls left the program feeling inspired and having contributed over 30 hours of volunteer trail work each. We're looking forward to another great trip this year.
