Published continuously since 1876, Appalachia is America’s longest-running journal of mountaineering and conservation. Each issue delivers inspired writing on mountain exploration, ecology, and conservation; news about international mountaineering expeditions; analysis of northeastern mountaineering accidents; poems by leading poets; and much more. The print journal appears twice a year, on June 15 (Summer/Fall) and December 15 (Winter/Spring).
