Committee Corner is where one finds news about what various committees are working on. Sharing news is voluntary and committees are busy, so may not always find time to share news. We hope committee participation grows over time. Thank you to the committees that sent news on such short notice.
Outreach Committee News
The GDTA Outreach Committee has some interesting things in development for members, hikers and the public in the coming few months leading into the 2021 hiking season.
After a quiet previous year, the GDTA’s Outreach Committee has been working on some new experiences for all of us to enjoy and learn from. From exploring new possible merchandise options, developing webinars for educational and insightful topics and looking into possible trips without the sweat equity component of the trail building trips.
The schedule for the webinars will be available mid-March, with the first presentation being offered late March. Stay tuned for details, coming soon. The Outreach Committee is looking forward to sharing these experiences with you all.
