Appalachian Trail Specialty License Plates Generate Record Funds in Virginia

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy says a record amount of funds were generated from sales of the Virginia Appalachian Trail (A.T.) specialty license plate in 2014.
Those funds have been applied to the protection and stewardship of the Trail in Virginia.

The Conservancy says $45,000 was generated and will enabled the it to fund projects including open area management in Shenandoah National Park, Trail construction projects with the Konnarock Trail Crew program, outreach to young people throughout the state, and the Mount Rogers Appalachian Trail Club’s efforts to replace a critical bridge in Southwest Virginia.

Funds generated by the Virginia A.T. specialty license plate were applied to Trail projects by the ATC’s Regional Office in Roanoke in cooperation with a task force from the eight official Trail Maintaining Clubs designated in the state.

In addition to the A.T. specialty license plate in Virginia, plates are also available in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. Depending on the state, a portion of the cost of each plate (between $10 and $20) is returned to the ATC.
