We're At It Again--2013 Season

The 2013 Season is Ready to Go.  

We have about 60 projects slated for this season, beginning in mid-March and running through early November.  You can check out the schedule here: to see all that we have to offer.

Remember, no experience is necessary to join any of our projects.  Even if you've never hiked before, most of our worksites are less than a mile from the trailhead--and we'd love the opportunity to help you get your hands dirty.  Our work ranges from "yard work" (clipping and cutting overgrowth) to light carpentry, to digging in the dirt and moving heavy rocks.  We even paint stuff from time to time.

If plants are your thing, we have several opportunities for you to learn to monitor the rare species that are hidden (and some not so hidden) throughout the trail corridor lands.

What is required is that you dress appropriately for the weather (given the span of our season, you could find yourself in snow, rain or something in between) and wear sturdy footwear.  Most days are pretty nice however, and it's always a pleasure to be outdoors.  We also ask that you bring plenty of water to drink, as well as a snack and/or lunch if you plan on staying on the project for the whole day. 

If you have any questions about a project--either what is involved, where we are meeting or how long it will take--please don't hesitate to contact the listed leader, or the AT Committee in general at <>

I hope we will have the pleasure of working with you this season--the real danger is that you may like it so much you'll want to come back for more.
