History of Blue Mountain Eagle Climbing Club

Description: Rita Floriani long time member of the club, will present this illustrated lecture. Founded in 1916, this hiking club became an Appalachian Trail maintenance group as they built and maintained 102 miles of the trail along the top of the Blue Mountain. Armchair hikers will meet the clubs’ early environmentalists and visit the places club members hiked in the 1920s and 1930s, as well as a view of the beauty of the flora and fauna along the trail today.
