Each year the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) uses funds from the sale of North Carolina AT license plates to provide grants to organizations. In 2016, CMC received a grant for $3030 to buy tools: chain saws, weed-eaters, hazel hoes, rock bars, and toppers. CMC maintains 93 miles of the AT. In 2015, over 100 volunteers contributed 4228 hours in maintaining “our” part of the AT. The new tools are much appreciated. Thank you ATC!
