Overview

The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement. Come out and celebrate this special 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with the AMC-DV! Hopefully you have heard about Leave No Trace and how important it is for protecting the environment (if not, please ask). In support of the conservation mission of Earth Day and the Appalachian Mountain Club, we are taking our efforts a step further and "Erasing the Trace." While we enjoy a hike on the famous Appalachian Trail with "rocksylvania" terrain of the south trail, budding leaves, and spectacular views, we can also maintain that beauty by picking up items that don't belong, left behind by others. This hike begins with steep elevation and rocky footing. Pace will be moderate as we take time to take in views and take out trash. Participants must bring 2 liters of water, wear sturdy hiking boots, and bring snacks and a lunch. Bring trash bags if you can, but we will have extras. Trash bags and gloves are recommended, but we will have extras. Registration is required as group size is limited to reduce human impact on the trails. Please contact leaders Jeff Fritzinger (jfritz110@gmail.com) or Barbara Beatrice (equeyaya@gmail.com) for details.
