PA Trails Advisory Committee Seeking Applicants

DCNR is accepting letters of interest for seven Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee appointments representing the following user groups: bicycling, hiking, cross-country skiing, water trails users, and three members at large.

The committee is charged with implementing the recommendations of the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan to develop a statewide land and water trail network to facilitate recreation, transportation, and healthy lifestyles.

Appointed members will serve a three-year term beginning January 1, 2019. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter and resume to by October 31.

We need to have one or more representatives on this committee, as it is already loaded with representatives of motorized users: motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles and four-wheel drive vehicles.

Expenses will be covered by the DV chapter.

Shelter watchers needed!

Our chapter maintains the LeRoy Smith Shelter on the Appalachian Trail between Little Gap and Wind Gap. Chapter volunteers visit the shelter once a week to check on the condition of the shelter and privy, remove debris, and post their findings to the Shelter Chair.  The hike up to the shelter and return takes an average 3-4 hours.

We need to add volunteers to the Shelter Watch team to replace retiring watchers — some of whom have “watched” for over 20 years.  If you would be willing to do a shelter watch visit once a year, please contact Pat Sacks at 610-437-3227 or
