Priscilla Estes named volunteer of month for conservation promotion, leadership

Priscilla Estes is our Volunteer of the Month for her action in AMC’s  effort to promote reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). She led hikes with a LWCF theme at Edward Forsythe NWR in Oceanville, NJ, and at Ramapo State Forest in northern New Jersey.

Priscilla has been working on a way to introduce more people to the outdoor areas we love for the past two years: she is writing a book on hiking in New Jersey for AMC that includes both the LWCF hikes she led. We anticipate the book will be coming off the presses in early 2019.

Priscilla also shares another talent with AMC members when she leads yoga and hiking weekends at Mohican Outdoor Center.  J


Our Volunteer of the Month program was initiated to recognize volunteers nominated by their peers. Chapter members can nominate volunteers by e-mail to nomination should contain the nominee’s name, reason for the recognition, and name of the nominator. Each nominee name is entered into a random drawing for the Volunteer of the Month recognition. The monthly winners are entered into an annual drawing at the Annual Dinner for a grand prize of a weekend stay at an AMC facility. Nominees must be an AMC member, not a member of the current Executive Committee, and may serve in any volunteer capacity that benefits the Chapter mission in the Delaware Valley area.
