Appalachian Trail Youth Leadership Summit 2010

During the week of June 27 - July 2, 2010 the AMC hosted the 2010 Appalachian Trail Youth Leadership Summit at the Highland Center at Crawford Notch.

The AMC Trails Department contributed on a few occasions during the week. Alex DeLucia contributed to one of the many workshops that was offered throughout the week. For the "Fundamentals of Project Management" Alex worked with a group of youth from Ground Works of Yonkers, NY. They discussed trails, trail layout, trail structures, visitor use and trail impacts.

At the conclusion of the week the AMC Camp Dodge Staff led 6 different trail projects around the area as the service component of the Leadership Summit. We had three groups clearing drainage and brushing out overgrown trail, two groups doing a few rock work projects, and one group building bog bridges.

This was a great group to work with and we took far too many photos to post here all at once. We enjoyed working with the participants of the 2010 Appalachian Trail Youth Leadership Summit and we wish them luck as they continue to peruse conservation, leadership and community building.
