The Genesee Valley Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club is an outdoor club with scheduled outings, conservation activities, as well as volunteer and educational opportunites.
The club is active in the scheduling of outings with a trip calendar that has something for everyone: hiking, backpacking, X-C skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing and cave exploration. The difficulties of the trips range from easy for the beginner, to challenging for the expert. There's always at least one beginners trip in each of the categories so it's a great opportunity to try out a new sport.
Through their conservation committee they keep current (and often take active stands) on such issues as acid rain, state land acquisition and local park planning.
Perhaps the best way to find out about the Adirondack Mountain Club is to attend one of their meetings and discover for yourself what membership could mean to you. Monthly meetings include a program that is both entertaining and informative and they are often preceded by an educational workshop. The meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month from September through June.
Participation in Club and Chapter affairs as an active member can be a satisfying and enjoyable experience. From the fellowship of simply attending meetings, to volunteer trail maintenance and litter clean-up, to chairing a committee, there are many rewarding activities in which to involve yourself.
