In Our Neck of the Woods With the AMC

Many know the Appalachian Mountain Club for its huts and centers in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and Maine’s North Woods. We joined the AMC for a day to to build tent platforms, canoe racks, and a trail kiosk closer to home at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Ponkapoag Campsite. The Ponkapoag site provides easy access to an outdoor experience for city youth and residents, and allows visitors to understand the restorative effects of time spent in a natural setting. People value what they know, and hopefully more people will value conservation and the natural world after experiencing Ponkapoag.
