Dear Order of the Arrow Member,
American Hiking Society is excited to be a partner with the Order of the Arrow, Boy Scouts of America. We would like to introduce you to American Hiking Society and our National Trails Day® and share how you can be part of the nation’s largest trails celebration!
Since its founding in 1976, American Hiking Society has been the only national voice for hikers - dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s hiking trails, their surrounding natural areas and the hiking experience.
American Hiking Society works every day by speaking for hikers in the halls of Congress and with federal land managers, building and maintaining hiking trails, educating and supporting hikers by providing information and resources, and supporting hiking and trail organizations nationwide
On June 5, 2010, American Hiking Society and outdoor enthusiasts across the country will participate in the 18th annual National Trails Day® (NTD), a long-standing celebration of America’s magnificent trail system. More than 1,500 events will take place around the country including trail maintenance projects, hikes, paddle trip, bike and horseback rides, wildlife viewing activities, running and trail celebrations, and so much more!
Happy National Trails Day and Happy Trails,
Trail Programs Manager
American Hiking Society
