ATC Volunteer Steward (NY)

Appalachian Trail Conservancy

August 06, 2019
The Appalachian Trail was envisioned to serves an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. With the Trails proximity to some of the most highly populated areas on the east coast, such as New York City, it is vital that its visitors are educated on the importance of their impact. Volunteer stewards serve as the interpreters of the land, serving by example in their efforts to keep the trail pristine as well as educating the public how they can practice being stewards no matter what trail they may be on. Volunteer stewards are needed in high traffic location. This includes parking areas, points of interest throughout the Trail, or heavily used portions of the Trail.
