Volunteers needed to maintain Appalachian Trail


GATLINBURG (AP) - A lot of the trail work in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is done by volunteers. There is another service opportunity June 1.

It is the 21st National Trails Day and volunteers are needed to help maintain the Appalachian Trail.

Volunteers need sturdy shoes, adequate drinking water and will need to pack a lunch. At the end of the day, volunteers will be treated to a picnic at Melcalf Bottoms and get a commemorative T-shirt.

There's a $25 registration fee, which goes to sponsor trail projects in the Smokies.

For more information or to obtain a registration form, visit the Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park website at: http://www.friendsofthesmokies.org/events.html or contact Holly Scott at (865) 932-4794.
