I pledge to HIKE 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes to support American Hiking Society's environmental trail stewardship program, Volunteer Vacations.
For 40 years, Volunteer Vacations has fostered public land stewardship and provided volunteers, who donate their time, money, and energy, to help design build and maintain hiking trails throughout the country. In 2015, 540 volunteers participated in 62 stewardship projects. They contributed 21,600 volunteer hours, worth an estimated $498,312 in sweat equity.
The three hikers with the top pledges for American Hiking Society's Stewardship program by their Birthday on October 13, 2016 will win a prize package including Leki poles, an Adventure Medical Kit, a Columbia backpack.
