How Can I Help the MATC?

There are MANY opportunities for volunteers to help the MATC preserve and protect the Appalachian Trail in Maine, and have FUN to boot.

  • Volunteers with a variety of skills are needed ranging from light & heavy trail work to clerical to carpentry to computer database entry (register card data tabulation).
  • Help is always needed for work trips that could involve relocating trails, constructing lean-to’s, building bog bridges, building stone steps, painting blazes, general spring trail clean-up and working with the Maine Trail Crew.
  • Volunteer positions, work trips and assistance needed will be posted on our website – www.matc.org and in the MATC newsletter, The MAINEtainer.

Maine Trail Crew Closure

Covid-19 (commonly referred to “coronavirus”) is a highly contagious respiratory virus has been diagnosed in all of the states along the Appalachian Trail, including Maine. Due to the high risk of spreading this illness in group settings the Maine Appalachian Trail Club has made the tough decision to discontinue the Maine Trail Crew, in 2020, to keep our staff and volunteers safe. We are concerned about the risk of spreading the virus when crew members travel together in vans, share housing, food, tools and privies. This is disappointing for MATC as an organization and for our many dedicated volunteers. Thank you for understanding.
Please consider volunteering with the Maine Trail Crew in 2021.
