This is part two of my conversation with the Access Fund–Jeep Conservation Teams. Today is Annie and Mat from the East Conservation Team. This dynamic duo is responsible for the crags and boulders throughout the Eastern United States. As a regional team, they spend extended amounts of time in one spot, completing major stewardship projects at popular areas such as Rumney and Cathedral Ledge, where they are currently working. Annie and Mat bring extensive experience from working on a conservation corps in North Carolina prior to joining Access Fund. They are now taking their passion for stewardship and their newly found love of climbing to care for our treasured climbing resources across the Eastern United States.
