Support Our Work

Let’s do this together

The hike will take over a year. Did you know?

The American Perimeter Trail Conference is a grassroots 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to conservation and community. With your generous support we are able to fund the scouting hike necessary to establish the APT and fund additional projects related to the creation of what will be America’s newest and largest conservation and volunteer community. All contributions are tax deductible.
