Since 1974, we have conserved more than 70,000 acres of the
of the Southern Appalachians for present and future generations.

On Tuesday, we were invited to assist the USDA Forest Service
Youth Conservation Corps, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and Tennessee Eastman Hiking and Canoeing Club (TEHCC) with trail improvements leading to Jane Bald in the Highlands of Roan. We had a lively work day with eager interns from widespread home locations, including New Orleans, Dallas, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Recent rain has eroded gravel from sections of the Appalachian Trail, causing large puddles to form along some stretches, leading hikers to form a secondary path to the right of the Trail. The mission on this workday was to restore the designated trail and discourage off-trail hiking. Thank you to all these amazing volunteers for their service!
