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 email@example.com 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.
