Third Thursdays in Boiling Springs and Carlisle, PA

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) continues its “Third Thursdays” event series with an easy, 4-mile hike beginning at 6 p.m. May 15 in Carlisle, PA. Explore the pastoral farmlands of the Cumberland Valley and learn why this landscape differs from much of the rest of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.)

During the event, Michele Miller, the ATC’s Resource Program manager in the Mid-Atlantic Region, will be on hand to share information about the routing of the Trail through agricultural lands. Heidi Witmer, executive director of the Carlisle-based LEAF Project, will also share gardening ideas for use in a much smaller scale in your own back yard. Space is limited; register by calling 717.258.5771 or online athttp://atcthirdthursdays.eventbrite.com.
