Appalachian Trail Mega-Transect

As described in this report from the Associated Press, "a diverse collection of organizations have launched a project to begin long-term monitoring" of environmental health along the length of the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail. One of the projects that organizers anticipate volunteers being able to contribute to is "tracking the arrival times of migratory birds."

The goal and objectives of the mega-transect, along with a list of sponsors, is outlined here by the Appalachian Trail Conference.

Ever read Bill Bryson's "A Walk in the Woods"?
It sounds to me like certain parts of the trail really need help.
