Corridor Monitoring Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Do you enjoy getting off of the beaten path? Eager to wield a compass and protect the Appalachian Trail? Take this workshop to learn how to preserve the AT as a volunteer Corridor Monitor!

Corridor monitoring helps to protect the land that the Appalachian Trail passes through, including the boundary of the property it occupies. 

This course will help you to gain or improve upon the skills necessary to become a Trail Conference Corridor Monitor. Skills include: reading survey maps and navigating off trail using a compass and GPS, recognizing land encroachments and illegal use, preserving access to survey monuments, and reporting conditions. The workshop will be led by volunteers Ron Rosen, Fred Stern, and Jim Haggett.
