Sep 15: Leave no Trace on your next Appalachian Trail Adventure 

Speaker Bio: Marian Orlousky is the Director of Science and Stewardship for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. She is a Leave No Trace Master Educator and the Leave No Trace Volunteer State Advocate for Pennsylvania. Her work is focused on elevating natural resource stewardship and protection across the Appalachian Trail Corridor through direct monitoring and management of resources and habitats, and through collaborative partnerships with researchers, universities, other non-profits and a variety of agencies. Marian received her B.S. in Biology from Juniata College and her masters in Ecology from SUNY-Environmental Science and Forestry. She lives on the South Mountain in Cumberland County, PA.

Presentation: Join me for a conversation about makes the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) one of the most iconic hiking trails in the world and why it's worth protecting. I'll talk about some of the visitor use trends and patterns we are currently seeing on the A.T. and some of the challenges the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and its management partners face in protecting the A.T. hike experience. I'll talk about Leave No Trace practices and best ways that you can prepare yourself and your group for a hike on the A.T.
