The Old Dominion Appalachian Trail Club

The Old Dominion Appalachian Trail Club (ODATC) is an organization of individuals and trail-related organizations who meet to recreate in the outdoors in various ways as well as act as stewards of a portion of the Appalachian Trail and the public lands it runs through.  Our recreational  endeavors focus on hiking in Virginia but includes biking, paddling and touring as well.   While the majority of our events occur in Virginia our only true limits are what members wish to limit themselves to. Learn more

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the City of Roanoke Parks and Recreation are partnering together to offer a Leave No Trace Master Educator Course in Carvins Cove!

This five-day course will be based at the Carvins Cove Natural Reservoir. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the seven principles of Leave No Trace, and will be able to disseminate these low impact skills to others. Master Educator Courses are designed for educators, guides, volunteers, agency employees and other outdoor professionals.

Successful graduates of the Master Educator Course gain skills to teach Leave No Trace techniques and ethics to their clients, friends and family in a variety of settings - such as schools, camps, parks, wilderness and front country areas.

Space is limited! For more information contact:        Kathryn Herndon-Powell:  kherndon@appalachiantrail.org, 540.904.4393, or the City of Roanoke Parks and Recreation Department at 540.853.2236, www.playroanoke.com
