SEFTC Leadership Council in May '05 at South Carolina's Table Rock State Park
On the weekend of May 5-7, representatives from the Southeastern Foot Trails Coalition (SEFTC) will meet in Micanopy, Florida to plan the next steps in the creation of our 5,000-mile interconnected trail network here in the southeast. To get an idea of the work that these clubs are doing, and to understand the effort required to construct a trail, please take a look at this video.
How can you get involved? We'll you can sign-up for our free e-newsletter that will clue you in to volunteer opportunities, trail celebrations, and provide the latest news from the SEFTC members. If you can't wait, and want to get involved right away, the Cumberland Trail Conference is looking for a Camp Cook to support their Big Dig trail program from mid-May to June 30. Room and board is included! To learn more about this volunteer opportunity, contact Paul Freeman, the Executive Director of the Cumberland Trail Conference.
The members of the SEFTC are in the early stages of planning a hiking conference to be held May 3-6, 2007 at the Montreat Conference Center in Montreat, NC. Located just 20 minutes east of beautiful Asheville, NC - this conference will feature hikes, great entertainment, fantastic speakers, and the opportunity to meet some new friends. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting event. It's gonna be a hoot!
