Appalachian Trail Conservancy has spring bash scheduled

By Staff | Mar 23, 2012

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) and the local Friends of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) invite the local community to attend the A.T. Community Spring Bash for kids’ activities, food and fun at the Bolivar Community Center, located at 60 Panama Street in Bolivar from 11 a.m. 2 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 7. This event is free and open to the public.

Guests will have the opportunity to win prizes, get information on the A.T., and enjoy live music. There will also be a “mini” A.T. hike, kids’ craft corner, hiker dress-up trunk and more. Lunch will be provided.

The towns of Harpers Ferry and Bolivar partnered to become an Appalachian Trail Community in 2011. The Appalachian Trail Community program is designed to recognize communities that promote and protect the A.T. Towns, counties, and communities along the A.T.’s corridor are considered assets by A.T. hikers and many of these towns act as good friends and neighbors to the Trail. The program serves to assist communities with sustainable economic development through tourism and outdoor recreation, while preserving and protecting the A.T.
