Looking for a way to spend one of these beautiful Washington summer weekends?

Gather some close friends or family and join WTA on an overnight trip! Volunteering on weekend work parties is a great way to give back to trails, have a fun camping experience and get to know other people who love being outdoors, all at the same time.

You'll spend your weekend digging in the dirt with a fun crew of volunteers, eating a potluck meal around a campfire and sleeping under the stars in a spectacular outdoor setting. For most official weekend work parties, WTA provides a Saturday night meal; all you need to bring is a side dish to share.

So find your favorite potluck recipe and ask a couple of friends to join you on one of these weekend work parties.
