        The ADKHighpeaks Foundation as a direct result of donations made on Giving Tuesday November 28th in support of Neil Luckhurst’ upcoming Project 100 Fundraising Epic we are proud to announce that our first Grant for 2018 for $1,000 will go to “Sum(m)it Up For Poke-O”: Poke-O-Moonshine’s Ranger Trail Rehab Project

        From the Grant Application
        “In 2011, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC)
        announced that because of severe erosion, it would consider closing the historic
        Ranger Trail on Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain.
        This hiking route has documented use from the 1850s, the summit fire tower was
        constructed in 1917, and the Friends of Poke-O-Moonshine have been land stewards
        and educators on the mountain since 1997. The Friends worked with DEC to restore
        the fire tower as an educational and historic site in 2005, and to repurpose the
        Ranger Trail as an interpretive trail in the same year. This team has hired and
        supervised Environmental Studies college students as Fire Tower Stewards to
        engage and educate Poke-O’s hiking public every summer during this period.
        Approximately 20,000 hikers climb the mountain annually, from as far as Japan and
        as close as nearby Keeseville. Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) chapters, school
        classes and sports teams, and summer camps hike Poke-O-Moonshine. The
        mountain has a huge following.
        Because New York State had no funds to rehabilitate the Ranger Trail, the Friends of
        “Poke-O” in 2013 undertook a five-year campaign to keep this educational trail open
        to the hiking public.”

        "Climbing is about freedom. There's no prize money; there are no gold medals. The mountains are all about going there to do what you want to do. That's why I'll never tell anyone else how to climb. All I can say is, This is how I prefer to do it."

          Great news.

          Hey, I want to donate, but Paypal fights me, demanding a password. I have no time for Paypal. Where can I snail mail a check?

          Thanks!
