2014 Projects Schedule
Feb. 1 - 8: St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
The ADK Supervised Volunteer Trails Program is heading south to the U.S. Virgin Islands in February 2014. Working with the Virgin Islands National Park (VINP), Friends of Virgin Island National Park, and a well established volunteer program, ADK volunteers will help maintain the network of trails that exists on St. John.
Participants will work on the trail Sunday through Friday from 8 am to 3pm. The Volunteer Leader will transport the crew to the work site each day. After the work day is over, afternoon transportation will be the responsibility of the volunteer to furnish if they would like to explore the island. The Volunteer Leader will provide trail work instruction and all tools required.
The VINP Cinnamon Bay Campground has a dedicated base camp that volunteers stay at. The base camp consists of five 12’ by 16’ tent platforms with Eureka cabin tents, each with four sleeping cots. Tents are under large tarps hung above to provide rain protection and to allow for air circulation. There are propane stoves, ice chests and food storage boxes for group use. All cooking equipment (pots, pans, utensils and eating materials) are also provided. All meals will be provided and everyone will assist with meal preparation.
The participation fee for this service project is $380.00 per person. Transportation to and from St. John is the responsibility of the volunteer. February 8th is the departure date. Participants are welcome to stay longer or arrive before the beginning of the service project at their own expense. Keeping in mind that The Cinnamon Bay base camp will not be available.
The maximum number of volunteers that the base camp can accommodate is twenty and it is anticipated that this trip will fill quickly. Upon registering, a complete information packet will be emailed to participants that will include an equipment & gear list and directions.
