Give Back to the Trail on Giving Tuesday

Protecting the Trail’s Most Vulnerable Species

The Appalachian Trail is home to more than 1,800 rare, threatened, and endangered plants and animals—including the northern metalmark butterfly. The loss of just one species can have a cascading effect that we can only begin to imagine.

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy works to protect the health of the most vulnerable species along the A.T. to ensure the Trail experience remains unparalleled for generations to come.

Help support these efforts and all our work to preserve this priceless natural resource by making a donation below.

Your support helps ensure that the A.T. and its surrounding lands continue to support important native species.
