    HARPERS FERRY, WV, July 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Pennsylvania Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) Specialty License Plate is now available with a portion of the proceeds dedicated to help manage and protect the Appalachian Trail (A.T.).

"The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is very pleased to see this project come to fruition in the state of Pennsylvania," said Karen Lutz, ATC regional director. "Not only will this help raise awareness of the Appalachian Trail and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, it will also help generate some much need funds to help support our mission."

Volunteers have been working over eight years to help make the ATC specialty license plate a reality in the state of Pennsylvania.

To date the ATC has a total of five specialty license plates in the states of Pennsylvania, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia.
