What is the Bull Run Mountains Conservancy, Inc. (BRMC)?

The Bull Run Mountains Conservancy, Inc. (BRMC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1995 to protect the Bull Run Mountains through education, research, and stewardship. As the most easterly chain in the Piedmont, the Bull Run Mountains include unique ecosystems and the headwaters of the Occoquan and Goose Creek watersheds. The Bull Run Mountains are also rich in Virginia and Civil War history. BRMC is headquartered on the southern 800 acres of the 2,500-acre Bull Run Mountains Natural Area Preserve just 15 minutes from Manassas, Middleburg, and Warrenton, Virginia.

MAHG MEMBERS who volunteer in this volunteer trail work opportunity will receive free hikes (regular 1-2 dollar value hikes only) with The Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group (MAHG) for the next 30 days from the date of the event (or the date I confirm receipt of your e-mail; whichever comes later) as a token of our gratitude and appreciation for helping us take care of the trails! However, YOU MUST let me know that you attended the event in order to receive your free hikes by sending me a brief description of the project you worked on to [masked]. If you do not receive an e-mail confirmation from me within 48 hours after sending your summary, pretty please text or call me at 240.393.7640. I receive an average of 300 e-mails from members daily and as a result, it is possible for me to run days behind when responding to e-mails. Please note that there is only one me and over 13,500 of you-grin.  Thanks so much for your time and for participating in this community-building event and it should be a ton of fun too. I hope to see you out on the trail soon. Note: If you contact me after the event has occurred to let me know you were there, but you did not sign up on our site in advance, you will not receive any free hikes.

    the site is still not fully restored after Meetips site being down for the past day. Our group has been around for close to 7 years and this was a first so for you new members, the site is very stable. Here is a link I found to the mountain house where you meet. http://brmconservancy.org/area_map.html. Meetips says all links should be working by mid day tomorrow but that won't help you so hope you can get there with this link. It is very detailed. http://brmconservancy.org/area_map.html

    Kellie I thought I'd be able to help out but a prior commitment falls right in the middle and won't allow me to get there in time to do much. I'll look
