Want a Unique Volunteer Experience?

Wilcox South Shelter

Many Chapter members know well how to find out about upcoming trips like bicycling rides, hikes, climbs, and paddling excursions. What isn't as well known is that "volunteer opportunities" are listed in a different place! While most volunteer opportunities take place in the outdoors just like Chapter trips, they aren't really "trips." Rather, they are opportunities to "give back" in different ways, like these:

AMC Adventure Travel Opportunities

Wild Alaska Day Hiking and Touring by Land, Sea, and Air
June 24-July 3, 2018
A spectacular trip for those looking to sample Alaska with only a daypack! Due to popular demand, we are offering a second session of this trip in 2018. On this spectacular journey, we will be hiking and sightseeing during the day, staying in comfortable lodging at night, and eating fresh seafood and local grub all through the long days of Alaska's ephemeral summer. We will spend 10 days and 9 nights exploring Anchorage and the Chugach mountain range, Denali National Park, and rub elbows with the locals in the funky mountain town of Talkeetna (perhaps the model for the TV show, "Northern Exposure").

The presenters are Joe Gelinas and Roxanne Suprina, AMC Berkshire Chapter hike leaders, who visited the Galapagos last year. They have amazing tales and photos of the region and its wildlife.

High Water/Ice on AT in MA

The Trail segment between Kellogg Rd and US Rt 7 in Mass has been subject to high water and ice from localized flooding along the Housatonic River.  Even when water levels recede, there will be many places with thin/unstable ice 12" or more above the treadway.  Snow cover may make it impossible to determine where the ice is and is not.  

At several locations, the Trail is immediately adjacent to the riverbank, and hikers breaking through the ice could end up in the river, or in deep tributary streams.  Avoid this Trail segment until bare ground is visible on the treadway.
