Julie Judkins Profiled

The Asheville (NC) Citizen-Times carries one of those 'get to know your neighbors' pieces in its 3 March 2007 issue, written by Lindsay Nash and headlined "Trail advocate protects, conserves and promotes AT." The focus of the article is Julie Judkins, resource program manager with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

She writes that Judkins "works in the Asheville office of the ATC to protect the plants along the trail and control non-native invasive species, like kudzu, Oriental bittersweet and multiflora roses. Judkins also advocates for the trail, preaching Leave No Trace ethics...."

This is the nice, informative kind of piece you usually only read in the AT Journeys magazine.
