This Saturday, September 25, is North Country National Scenic Trail Day (NCNST Day), as well as National Public Lands Day. Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together on National Public Lands Day to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. These trail “holidays” coincide each year to bring awareness, use and volunteerism specifically to the longest National Scenic Trail in America: the North Country Trail.
Celebrate and participate by joining the NCTA or renewing your membership specifically on September 25 to help us meet a membership challenge! Generous donors have pledged up to $7,000 to match your membership on that day only. Mark your calendar, set a reminder, tell your friends!
You can also join a local Chapter for a hike or a workday, or hike a section of the NCT with your family and friends. Find events here. Celebrate in a way that works best for you! Share your adventures with us on social media using #NCNSTDay.
