PATC has announced that their Annual Meeting will be virtual again this year. With the uncertainty of everyone's lives with COVID-19 still being around, they have decided not to expend the money to have an in-person meeting. Registration details will be coming out later in September.
Please be aware that as of August 22, Shenandoah National Park has once again implemented a mask requirement when inside buildings in the park.
Women Outdoors will be held on Saturday October 15, 2022 at Natural Chimney located in Mt. Solon, VA. This event is free and open to all women. The event is tentatively planned from 10:00-5:00. Since this is a free event, there will be no lunch served (everyone will be asked to bring a packed lunch), however there will be light morning and afternoon snacks. Below is a draft schedule time frame. A hike is planned to explore Natural Chimney.
