RATC Corridor Stewardship Workshop

Are you interested in volunteering on the Appalachian Trail, but looking for a different opportunity? If land conservation, orienteering, bushwacking, and treasure hunts pique your interest – ATC and RATC could use your help!  There are over 60 miles of A.T. corridor needing some love and attention – from Pearisburg up to the I-81/Daleville crossing. Join us and learn all about being a corridor stewardship volunteer. 

In this classroom & in-the-field/hands-on workshop, attendees will learn all about boundary monitoring, maintenance, and encroachment mitigation.  Space is limited and advance registration is required (please RSVP here). Any questions contact Josh Kloehn (ATC) at jkloehn@appalachiantrail.org or (540)904-4391. 

Check out more Boundary/Corridor resources at ATC’s website here.

Plan for the day: 

10am – 12pm: Classroom portion

12pm – 12:30: Lunch (bring your lunch)

12:30 – 4pm: Field portion – we’ll drive to the project (location TBD), and maintain & monitor some boundary!

You should bring: work clothes (long pants) that you don’t mind getting dirty and/or yellow painted, good hiking boots/shoes, day pack, water, and work gloves. If you have a compass, please feel free to bring it. All other tools, supplies, and gear will be provided.
