Active MEMBERS of The Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group who participate in this volunteer event will receive a month of free hikes (regular 1-2 dollar hikes only, sorry, no free camping trips or special events) with The Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group. The free hikes will be for the 30 day time period immediately following this volunteer event. These are provided by me personally, and are a token of my appreciation for helping us take care of some of the trails and areas we frequent! In order to receive your free hikes, you MUST RSVP on this page (contacting me after the event to let me know you were there but did not sign up will not result in receipt of this incentive). After the event, please confirm with me that you did attend and participated in the event for its duration. Thanks so much for your time and for participating in this community building event. Not only is this for a great cause, it will be a ton of fun too and I appreciate that you are considering helping us to improve this outstanding area in such a state of need!
