You might not be anywhere near Auburn, Maine, on Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 6:30 PM, but you should be if you need more inspiration from the Appalachian Trail (AT).
The Friends of the Appalachian Trail in Maine and the Androscoggin Land Trust have scheduled another evening presentation for you.
This one has thru-hiker and Maine Appalachian Trail Club (MATC) Trail Maintainer Carey Kish sharing his personal insights in "An Adventurous and Inspiring Evening along the Appalachian Trail."
The AT is a national treasure that will only become more valuable and rare in the years ahead. Learn how you can help protect it.
The Friends of the AT in Maine promotes and supports MATC. The Maine Appalachian Trail Club manages and maintains 267 miles of the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Founded in 1935, MATC is an all-volunteer, donor-supported nonprofit that welcomes new members and inspires respect for this natural treasure. Matc.org or Facebook.
Carey Kish of Bowdoin is a member of the MATC and maintains five miles of the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Kish is a long-time multi-sport adventurer who has thru-hiked the 2,150-mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.
The former president and founding member the Maine Outdoor Adventure Club, a Wilderness First Responder, and a Registered Maine Guide, Carey has led countless hiking and backpacking in Maine and beyond, and is also an avid mountain biker, sea kayaker, and downhill and cross-country skier.
A professional writer and photographer, Kish is editor of the AMC Maine Mountain Guide (10th edition) and the AMC Maine Chapter Wilderness Matters newsletter. He is also the hiking & camping columnist for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram.
