The museum has received a new grant to create an educational traveling exhibit to open Spring 2011. 

Roxanne Quimby was the co-founder of Burt's Bees and has been using her money to help the AT in quite a few ways. 

... "The Quimby Family Foundation also provided funding to scan nearly 13,000 Polaroid photographs representing approximately 18,600 individuals that were taken between 1979 and 2008 at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s headquarters in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Eventually these images will be made available in a searchable online database that will be incorporated into the conservancy’s website (www.appalachiantrail.org)"
