MATCprivyThe effort to rebuild all of the privies along the Appalachian Trail in Maine continues. The East Branch privy is up for construction this year. Providing functional privies for hikers helps concentrate our impact on the Trail and the land it traverses through.


Join the Maine Appalachian Trail Club (MATC) on Saturday, August 31 and/or Saturday, September 1 at 8 a.m. and help build the East Branch privy. No experience needed, everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. 


Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Be sure to bring plenty of water (2-3 liters at least) and snacks, a lunch, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and sunscreen.
