You are invited to apply for a scholarship that will cover all costs for food and overnight lodging during one of three short-stay trailwork opportunities in AMC’s Maine Wilderness Initiative area (MWI). The Peter Roderick Trail Work Award (PRTWA), named to honor a longtime Maine Chapter trail volunteer, will cover the cost of a multi-day volunteer trail work outing in AMC’s 78,000 acre MWI area outside of Greenville, Maine. The goals of this program are to encourage first- or second-time trail volunteers into the woods, to expand our cadre of new trail volunteers, and to provide an on-site opportunity to learn trailwork skills.

With preference to first- or second-time trailwork volunteers and to Young Member volunteers, up to four PRTWA scholarships may be awarded for use during any of three volunteer trips during 2018. Yes, Virginia, you can volunteer for trails and get a free lodge stay! See more information on the trips, how to apply, and the deadline on the PRTWA page.
