Dear First Light Learning Journey folks,

Appalachian Mountain Club has finalized a permitting process to allow Wabanaki tribal people access to AMC lands for purpose of harvesting Brown Ash for basket making. Congratulations and thanks to Steve Tatko for his diligence in making this happen! As I said at the meeting in June, positive relationships and trust are established through results. Steve has “walked the talk” here and we are grateful!
