Mount Rainier Amphibian Surveys 2023

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Mount Rainier’s science program is looking for dedicated individuals to participate in our 2023 summer Citizen Science Program to conduct field surveys of amphibians and fish in park lakes, ponds, and wetland areas. Volunteers will work under a trained Citizen Science Coordinator who works under the direction of the park Biologist. Work is in areas throughout the park, including remote wilderness as well as places near roads.


Citizen Science Volunteers will be expected to provide their own rain gear, hiking boots, water, food, daypack for day trips, backpack and gear for overnight backpacking trips, and any other personal items as needed. Volunteers may use their own aquatic sampling gear (i.e. waders, wader boots, etc.) but this gear will need to be disinfected first. If you do not have waders or wading boots, or prefer not to use your own for this project, they will be provided. Other field survey equipment will also be provided.


Schedule: Mount Rainier’s Citizen Science Coordinator will develop a schedule of projects over the course of the summer. The Coordinator comes on duty in the beginning of July. Projects will begin in mid to late July, depending on snowmelt, and continue until early September. You may volunteer for one or multiple surveys over the course of the summer, according to your own schedule and availability. Some projects may last multiple days, based out of a backcountry field camp. Housing is not available as this is not a full-time volunteer opportunity, however, camping is available for the duration of your volunteer experience.
