The Maine Appalachian Trail Club held their annual spring meeting last week. In addition to tackling ordinary club business – trail maintenance responsibilities, officer elections, etc. – there was considerable time devoted to planning for the upcoming Appalachian Trail Conservancy 2017 Conference which will be held right here in Maine. This biennial event is a gathering of people from all over the country who are connected to the A.T. – maintainers, volunteers, past thru-hikers and more. The Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust will be a part of this great event.
This year’s conference will feature guided hikes, workshops, an art and land conservation symposium and more. The event will be held at Colby College and registration information can be found here. Registration opens on May 1st – sign up for this great event because it will be the last A.T. conference of this kind!
