Volunteer Vacations and COVID-19 Important Update

Due to the CDC’s most recent guidance regarding event gatherings of any size to prevent the continued spread of the pandemic COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all Volunteer Vacations scheduled to start before 5/10. This includes the following trips:

South Cumberland State Park
Kiptopeke State Park
Buckeye Trail, Wayne National Forest
Adirondack Park, Champlain Valley
Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail
Palmetto Trail
Tom’s Run Preserve

As an organization that fully understands the mental and physical benefits of being outside, volunteering, and disconnecting for a little while, we are so sorry these trips will not proceed as scheduled. But we want to heed the advice of experts on this matter, allow for social distancing that the CDC is encouraging, and do what we can to protect our volunteers, hosts and crew leaders, and the outdoor community. Please consider signing up for a Volunteer Vacation that starts after 5/10, making a donation to your local trail organization, or supporting the work of American Hiking Society through your membership or gift
