COVID Heroes: Those serving others during the pandemic

Our chapter members have heart! DV AMC is proud of those who have served as essential, front line workers throughout this crisis. To those who put themselves in harm's way to care for our neighbors and support our communities through work and volunteer efforts, thank you!

We asked chapter members to send nominations for people who have been doing extraordinary things to help their community, help the environment, or help AMC during the COVID pause. As you can see from the list below, many of our members have been busy doing just that in a wide variety of ways.

Bob Liston has accepted the role of our Chapter COVID Captain. His role is to be a DV area liaison to our national AMC office in Boston to inform them on weekly changes in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware government and land use manager guidance and directives.

This allows AMC to have the local area information needed to make decisions about the re-opening process. Bob has served on the Chapter Executive Committee and has been our Bicycling Committee Chair for the past three years.

Take the Kittatinny Ridge Recognition and Identification Survey

The Kittatinny Ridge (the Ridge) is Pennsylvania’s longest contiguous forested ridge. This long mountain range is familiar to many. It is the large forested expanse that one can view to the left when you travel north on Interstate 81 from the Maryland border and continue east on Interstate 78. It’s where many go to play, relax, enjoy nature, and get away from it all. Click here for more information and to take the survey.
