Monitoring-17The federal legislation that fortifies the security of the Appalachian Trails provides for a protected corridor of its adjacent lands. This corridor not only buffers the Trail from encroaching development, it also serves as a migratory path for many species on the eastern seaboard. 

Join the Dartmouth Outing Club on Saturday, September 21 and monitor the corridor boundaries of the Appalachian Trail. Monitoring the Trails corridor between Hanover and Mt. Moosilauke requires hiking through rough terrain and following the blazes of the Trail’s “property line” ensuring that no encroachments are being made on this priceless resource. Work includes walking off-trail to identify markers, and some orientation navigation. Training will be provided.

Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and plenty of water.

Advanced registration necessary; please use the following form in registering. Your trip leader will contact you with a meeting location as the event date approaches.
