The AT is managed and maintained by volunteers of all skill levels and interests--no prior experience is needed to participate. The Mass section of the Trail is highly regarded for the excellent condition of its treadway and facilities, as well as its iconic setting--your participation is key to continuing that high standard.

Northern Pass update and thanks

I’m writing to update you on next steps in our Northern Pass opposition work that contributions from your chapters helped make happen. As you know we sought funding from you to help meet the expense of the visual expert we hired in partnership with the Forest Society (SPNHF), and who is providing a key counterpoint to Northern Pass’s assessment of the visual impacts of the project. The filing deadline for that testimony was December 30th, and we are very pleased with the results.
