|Take a Hike on the Beach|
The Florida Trail is a sister national scenic trail to our own Appalachian Trail. We’ll take the estimable skills and experience our volunteers have from working in New England down south where we’ll no doubt learn some new trail skills!
From January 17-24, 2015, we are going to stay at the FTA’s Volunteer Base, Thompson House near Crawfordville, Florida. Out of these cushy confines, we’ll head to the trail each day in the St. Mark’s National Wildlife Refuge area where we will work on basic maintenance and maybe some larger infrastructure construction projects as well. Working on the Florida Trail will mean we get to experience marsh ecosystems and maybe see some American Alligators and countless different bird species.
