The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) is a stalwart ally in the struggle against those who would negatively impact the environment.

The Northern Pass in New Hampshire -- a 186-mile-long power line through New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest and the Appalachian Trail -- is a prime example of the value of AMC.

AMC cannot be ignored by those who would defile the wilderness. AMC speaks on our behalf and our opponents must listen.

AMC is concerned about proposed changes to mining regulations in Maine --recently drafted by the Maine Board of Environmental Protections (BEP) -- that, if adopted, would further increase the risk of pollution from mining operations.

In Maine, AMC joined with partners to celebrate the protection of 12,000 acres in Western Maine at Crocker Mountain, which includes three of Maine's highest peaks, a 10-mile section of the Appalachian Trail and a 4,000-acre ecological reserve.

Without the Appalachian Mountain Club, we'd be up a polluted creek without a paddle. Please take a look at AMC's 2013 Conservation Report and consider how you can help them defend and protect our land.
