A.T. Community Ambassadors are a big support to our designated communities. These volunteers provide outreach and education, plan local projects, and support events and initiatives in conjunction with the A.T. Community Advisory Committee and local A.T.-maintaining club. Ambassadors may table events providing A.T. information, work on highlighting the A.T. in local media and through social media, reach out to engage merchants in events, reach out to non-traditional hiking audiences, and/or recruit local citizens to work on local maintenance, management and conservation projects on the Appalachian National Scenic Trail.
Here are a few introducing themselves in person: https://vimeo.com/40376938
