Still need gifts? You don’t have much time to go out to the stores. And trust me, you don’t want to. I went out yesterday to Sam’s Club without Lenny. Never again.
Instead, send a gift to the groups above.
Appalachian Trail Conservancy – supports and maintains the A.T.
Carolina Mountain Club – My hiking club that offers hikes all year round and maintains over 400 miles of trails.
Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail – Works to maintain, build and promote the Moutains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina
Friends of the Smokies – Fundraises for Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Great Smoky Mountains Association – manages the bookstores in the Smokies and donates a portion of sales to the Smokies
Can your store-bought present match the good that a donation will do to our public lands?
So choose one or more organization. Get on their website and make a donation. Please support the groups that support the trails.
