Wild East WomenThis event has been canceled. A note from the organizers: "In the best interest of safety we are canceling the event Saturday due to extreme heat conditions that we are expecting this weekend. We will reschedule for a date in the fall when the conditions are more favorable." 

Wild East Women’s work days on the A.T. can motivate, empower, and inspire more women to pick up the tools and become stewards for a more equitable volunteer corps. This particular event will be taking place on Saturday, July 20 at 9:30 a.m.

The group will be meeting at Pawling Nature Preserve in Pawling, NY. If you plan to travel from Grand Central Station on the Metro North line, you may be eligible for a discounted ticket. Please contact the trip leader to inquire.

After a moderate, brief hike, you will have the opportunity to clear erosion control structures, cut back overgrown vegetation from the sides of the Trail, as well as mark the A.T. with its symbolic 2"X6" white blaze. Beginners are welcome! The event will end around 1:30 in the afternoon. Work gloves and tools provided. 

You are welcome to stay for an optional afternoon hike from 2:00 pm until about 4:30.

Be sure to wear long pants and sturdy boots. Bring plenty of water (3 liters recommended) and snacks, a lunch, sunscreen, bug spray, and a rain jacket.
