The 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 New York - New Jersey Trail Conference on Saturday, November 9th from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a workshop on corridor monitoring. Hiking through rough terrain and following the blazes of the Trail’s “property line” is required to ensure 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.
