GREAT RANGE TRIP

CLIMBING TRIP IN THE DACKS: ANCHOR BUILDING
Easter (Sunday the 24th)
The Adirondacks
This trip is intended first for climbers who may become future MMC climbing guides but are not yet ready for the SPI course. We will build anchors using trad gear and trees, discuss guiding safety standards, tackle more advanced curricula if people are ready (such as top-managed sites, hauling), and . . . climb!
If you do not intend to guide for the MMC but are still interested for personal improvement, don't hesitate to sign up, though priority will be given to potential future guides as space is limited.
E-mail ebrooks@middlebury.edu to sign up.

HIKE A TRAIL - SAVE A FOREST
This weekend college and high school students across the country are hiking on trails near their campuses and donating to the Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees program. (The Plant a Billion Trees program plants one tree in Brazil's Atlantic Forest for every dollar donated. Only 7% of the forest remains, which is why this program is so great.)
Other schools hiking and donating on the 17th include Williams, Yale, Colgate, Elon, Ohio U, and more! 
Midd students are hiking Snake Mountain
Depart ADK at 12:30
Sunday the 17th
Arrive back before 3:00
Bring $10 to donate to Plant a Billion Trees!
