Appalachian Trail Latinx Crew

Event Description:

Join ATC and Latinx Hikers July 11th through July 13th for a session building new Trail! This may include using hand tools to carve out and dig a flat surface for hikers to walk on. Volunteers will move lots of soil, dirt, and rocks.
Trail Crew projects are planned and completed in cooperation with A.T. maintaining clubs and agency partners such as the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service.
You must apply to get on a Trail Crew. It begins by expressing interest through the form below linked below, and completing an application you receive by email, along with additional material to prepare you for crew life.
Crew Life - All crew members must be able to live and work cooperatively and in close proximity with fellow volunteers of all genders, ages, and nationalities. All crew members are expected to participate in routine tasks, including cooking, cleaning, and tool care, both at base camp and the project site.
Crews are led by experienced, professional crew leaders eager to pass along Trail work and backcountry skills.
What We Provide - Appalachian Trail Conservancy provides training, equipment, and food, transportation to and from the project sites, and group camping gear.
After two days of working as a team, learning new skills, and living in the backcountry both the crew and the trail is transformed.
No experience is necessary, but you must be at least 18 years old to join this crew.
