23rd ANNUAL SMOKIES APPALACHIAN TRAIL WORK DAY
on Saturday, June 1, 2019
In Celebration Of
AMERICAN HIKING SOCIETY’s NATIONAL TRAILS DAY ®
Please join us to celebrate National Trails Day at our 23rd Annual Appalachian Trail Work Day in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This event is coordinated by the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, the Southern Regional Office of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with support from Friends of the Smokies. We invite you to participate in helping us take care of the A.T. in the Smokies! This fun event only comes around once a year, and you don’t want to miss it. Please get your registration in as soon as possible.
The AT Maintainers Committee of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy are responsible for maintaining the Appalachian Trail and its facilities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a continuing basis. With your help on National Trails Day, important trail maintenance projects are completed that otherwise would not be accomplished; these improvements make the Appalachian Trail in the Smokies safer and more enjoyable for the thousands of hikers who use the trail each year.
Registering early helps the Crew Assignment Committee get workers placed in work groups and increases your chance of being assigned to your hike/work preference. Workers will receive a commemorative t-shirt and enjoy a picnic at day’s end at the Twin Creeks covered pavilion.
Please see the registration form at www.smhclub.org for additional details or call/email Diane Petrilla at (931) 224-5149, email@example.com for more information.
