Our spring 2021 Newsletter is online!

We are excited to announce that our Spring 2021 Newsletter has been published! In this issue, you can read Board Member David Donaldson's account of his 1998 thru hike, during which he got to meet, hike with, and form a long-lasting friendship with Earl.

Board Member Dan Shaffer's article about Earl's Native American advocacy highlights a little-known side of Earl's work to support local Native American tribes and communities. And finally, we included poetry excerpts that illustrate Earl's focus on the Kinzua tribe in particular, including "The Question of Kinzua" and "Kinzua Death Chant".

We hope you enjoy this issue of the ESF newsletter. Feel free to reach out if you would like to learn more about Earl's work, and send us your own submissions to be featured in future newsletters. We are always looking for Appalachian Trail and hiking related poetry, art, and articles to feature in our newsletters.
