         Join in PATC for the​ MLK National Day of Service Clean-Up
 
                                                                 - DETAILS -

On Monday January 18, Potomac Appalachian Trail Club will join in the National Day of Service commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a Trail Clean-up day.


The current Covid-19 regulations prevent us from hosting a large centrally organized cleanup, so we are promoting self-guided Trail Cleanup days with your families or friends picking your favorite park, trail or even your own neighborhood to help pick up trash.


For your safety and that of your neighbors, please wear facial masks, especially within 6 feet of others from outside of your household.  Other items you might want to bring along include: reusable buckets or trash bags, disposable gloves, litter grabbers, bug spray, closed-toe shoes, water and snacks.


After you have completed your self-guided trail clean up, don’t forget to take a selfie with the trash you have collected and post on our social media accounts with the following #hashtags: #Nationaldayofservice2021 #trailcleanup #PATC


Please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing! 


Share your selfies and pictures with us by posting on 

our social media accounts using the following hashtags: ​

PATC Women's Winter Hiking Club

 The PATC Outreach Supervisor is working to establish a new PATC Women's Winter Hiking Club.  The club envisions two meetings per month, one will be Zoom meeting to discuss hiking related topics (example Hiking 101) and the 2nd would be a winter hike.  

Anyone interested in joining the club should email  Kristine at OutreachSup@patc.net.  Also Kristine invites anyone who is interested in helping to organize topics, hikes, and meeting to email her.  Kristine would like to get the club active by December.

Note - You do not need to be a member to join this club but I do have hopes that those who are not members, would fall in love with the PATC and join!

Hope everyone has a great day and see you out on the trail!
