The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) presented their 2019 Partnership Award to the Appalachian Mountain Club at MITA’s annual meeting in Belfast on August 15. This award was in recognition of the recent addition of AMC’s Knubble Bay Camp and Beal Island to the Maine Island Trail, the jointly promoted workshops and overnight kayak trips on the Maine Island
Trail offered by Maine Chapter leaders Alicia Heyburn and Peter Roderick, and collaborations between MITA and AMC for a July work day on Campbell Island off Deer Isle. The Maine Chapter thanks Alicia and Peter for their significant contributions leading to this MITA Partnership Award.
