2019 Returning Volunteer Registration
If you are a returning volunteer who is interested in collecting data for us this summer (2019) but cannot attend one of our three orientations and you have attended an orientation in the last 2 years (2017, 2018), please register your interest in MeadoWatch 2019 below. Do NOT forget to send us the materials described below (envelope, waivers). Once we receive them, we will send you the pamphlets and data sheets you will need to collect data for us in summer of 2019. The DEADLINE FOR REGISTERING IS JUNE 15, 2019! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at
Please send the requested materials to MeadoWatch, Department of Biology, Box 351800, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-1800:
1) A self addressed, stamped 12 by 9 inch clasp envelope, so we can send the materials you need to participate (pamphlets, data sheet) to the correct address. Please add postage for $2.65 (~ 10 ounces).

2) Volunteer Waivers. Please fill out both the NPS Volunteer Waiver and the UW Biology Volunteer forms and send them to us along with your pre-addressed envelope. DO NOT FORGET to sign them both (box 34 on page 2 of the NPS Waiver, and Volunteer Signature line on page 2 of the UW form). You can find them (and a description of MeadoWatch activities) at the link below:

We want to get you your materials as soon as possible so please be sure to you have included both the stamped and self addressed envelope and completed volunteer waivers.

Your answer
Which trail are you interested in hiking on? In other words, what materials will you need? Note, we are restricting all volunteers to two total hikes initially, so we can accommodate more volunteers this summer. *
No hikes
1 hike
2 hikes
Reflection Lakes (pamphlet and datasheets)
Glacier Basin (pamphlet and datasheets)
There is a lot of interest in MeadoWatch, and we often have to turn potential volunteers away after our orientations fill. One of the biggest limitations to our expanding the program to more trails is the time it takes us to conduct trail maintenance (weekly trips to our hikes to add new markers and replace markers). This summer, we would like to explore feasibility of two approaches to alleviate this constraint. One option is 'marker-less' trails, which only differ from our classic trails in that plots are defined by natural landmarks (i.e. we still provide datasheets and pamphlets). A second possibility is for us to provide 2-3 returning MeadoWatch volunteers with materials so they can help us with trail maintenance (this would require a more regular commitment to hiking that trail - e.g. 4+ times per summer). If you are a returning volunteer and are potentially interested in helping us test these options, please indicate this here.
If you have and questions or comments, please add them below!

We are so happy to have so many familiar faces hike with us! As returning volunteers, you have helped our project grow and improve greatly! If you have any questions or find that you will not be able to hike with us, please send us an email letting us know.

Thank you!
