In this project Steve Germann worked with the ATMS, but also with the Appalachian Trail Long Distance Hikers Association, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the National Park Service to focus on the mission, the location,  space needs, collecting efforts, exhibit priorities, and other aspects of the future operations of a planned, but not yet created, Appalachian Trail Museum.

“Our two-day workshop brought together stakeholders from our board, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, several Trail maintaining clubs, hiking groups, and representatives from the National Park Service.  Steve Germann was able to synthesize a wide variety of ideas for what this new museum should be into a vision that we could all get behind.  We opened to the public four years later.”
