WE CONTINUE TO ACCEPT CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE MAINE TRAIL CENTER. BE A TRAIL CHAMPION!
THE MAINE TRAIL CENTER
“MATC volunteers epitomize the hardworking, independent spirit of Maine
– without them, the A.T. in Maine would not exist.”
-David B. Field, Honorary Campaign Chair
Donors will make the Maine Trail Center a reality!
Donors to Trail Champions are helping to build the Maine Trail Center, a permanent home for the Maine Trail Crew and the Maine Appalachian Trail Club.
We are making progress! In the summer of 2023, the National Guard constructed two Crew Quarters as a gift-in-kind to the campaign.
We are grateful for their participation to bring the Maine Trail Center closer to reality. In-kind-gifts to the Maine Trail Center total more than $289,000. We sincerely thank those donors who joined the National Guard by supporting Trail Champions with free services.
