The Appalachian Trail and Trail Museum (June 28, 2013)
New City Rotarian and Appalachian Trail expert Larry Luxenberg has enjoyed educating people about the joys of outdoor adventure for over 30 years. Author of Walking the Appalachian Trail, called the “classic of the genre,” and featured in the May 2013 edition of The Rotarian magazine, Mr. Luxenberg has also established and is CEO of the Appalachian Trail Museum in Pennsylvania, with over 20,000 visitors since 2010. Working many years to protect the environment around the trail from pollution, pipelines, and other environmental hazards, Mr. Luxenberg is an example of a Rotarian who has used his own skills and volunteer efforts to make the world a better place. Here he shares interesting stories and such fascinating statistics as the length of the trail is over 2,000 miles.
