Hear what some of our 2019 trail crew members are saying.

“My proudest accomplishment was clearing 150 trees from the Boundary Trail in a single hitch! The long hikes we made into the Pasayten Wilderness carrying heavy packs and working in hot weather, sometimes with no shade, were challenging and rewarding at the same time. The season gave me some technical knowledge, but it also taught me to be a more patient person.”

-Adonis, 2019 Eastern Pasayten Crew Member

“The most memorable part of my season was our trip to the Goat Lakes from Hart’s Pass. That ten day hitch working on the PCT/ PNT was my first backpacking trip ever!

Soon after I finished my season with the PNTA, I decided to join Washington Conservation Corps. Now I help them do restoration and conservation work on riparian habitat throughout Washington State.”

-Erica, 2019 Western Pasayten Crew Member

“Having crew leaders as mentors and not just bosses was a real blessing. I’m proud of the progress our crew was able to make together and I’m proud to have worked through to the end of every hitch and to the end of the season.”

-Jacob, 2019 Mt Baker Crew Member
