Not everything in AMC has changed, however. Chapter Chairman Gardner Dean noted in the 1972 annual report that some of the issues facing AMC that year were “overuse of the trails and camping area, use of motor vehicles on foot trails, loss of wilderness areas to various usages, preservation and expansion of trail systems. A firmer position is being taken on conservation matters.” Many of these issues still face us in 2021, and we hope that AMC’s efforts to ”promote the protection, enjoyment, and wise use of the mountains, rivers and trails of the Northeast” will continue to have an effect on these problems in years to come.
