IAT Maine Celebrates With ATC's Dave Startzell
On Saturday, January 21st, IAT Founder Dick Anderson and Maine Chapter President Don Hudson traveled to the Bavarian Inn on the banks of the Potomac River in Shepherdstown, West Virginia to join over 100 family, colleagues and friends to celebrate the 34-year leadership of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy by David Startzell.
Dave announced his retirement in November 2010 and he'll wrap up his work for the ATC on January 31, 2012. It is fair to say that no one in the world has done more to promote the benefits to people and communities of long-distance trails.
The International Appalachian Trail is one of many footpaths in the world inspired by the Appalachian Trail.
