Area and Attractions

The Adirondack Park is the largest protected forest in the United States. It is one of the most beautiful areas in the country and uses the slogan "Forever Wild." Champlain Area Trails are located mostly in the Champlain Valley on the beautiful 150-mile-long Lake Champlain. Many of the trails offer gorgeous views of Lake, Champlain, the Green Mountains in Vermont, and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The area in which the volunteers will be working has gradual inclines, not as steep as the "High Peaks" region of the Adirondacks, with a variety of plants and wildlife. There are many things to do in the area: hiking, bicycling, shopping (Lake Placid, site of the 1980 Olympics is 45 minutes away), museums, historical sites, waterfalls, and other attractions. Early spring is special in the ADK/Champlain Valley as the area begins to wake from the long winter; depending on the weather, there may be abundant early wildflowers and trees budding.

Accommodations Description

Volunteers will stay in indoor dormitory style lodging with bunk beds. Showers and flush toilets on-site. Breakfast and dinner will be provided in the dining hall and the fixings for making lunch will be available for each volunteer to make their own lunch to take with them. Volunteers should bring their own linens (twin sized sheets or sleeping bag, pillow, and towel) and personal items.
