The first Saturday every June is designated American Hiking Society's National Trails Day® (NTD) in the United States. Each year, more than a million hikers, bikers, equestrians, and others take part in nationwide events to celebrate America's trails. We'll celebrate NTD on Mt. Agamenticus with a Volunteer Work Day beginning at 9:00 a.m. by conducting some spring maintenance within our 40 mile network of trails.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate your favorite local trails, highlight the important work hundreds of volunteers do each year in this region, and keep this trail network safe and sustainable for the tens of thousands of visitors that enjoy them each year.
Please register in advance.
When: Saturday, June 4th, 9:00am-12:30pm (This event is Rain or Shine!)
The next volunteer workday is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th. Please mark your calendars now!h
Come join us at Mt. A as we kick off our guided nature walk series with a Wetland Walk!
The Mount Agamenticus Conservation Program is seeking individuals to help staff the new environmental education facility at the summit of Mount A. Volunteers will greet weekend visitors as they explore the Learning Lodge, answer questions, and help to explain our current work and conservation goals.
The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this spring's feature: "Eliza and the Dragonfly" by Susie Caldwell Rinehart and illustrated by Anisa Claire Hovemann. To find the story start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
