Join the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (CT-AMC) on Wednesday, September 26 from 9 a.m to 3 p.m and spend the day learning and enhancing proper backcountry sanitation principles. 

The goal is to hike in materials and tools to a campsite in the depth of the pastoral Housatonic State Forest and repair/reconstruct an open air privy - that’s right, it is like an outhouse but without the walls.

The group will be meeting at the Breadloaf Mountain hiker parking area near the junction of Routes 4 and 7 in Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut. Be sure to wear long pants and sturdy boots. Also bring, sunscreen, bug spray, work gloves, snacks/lunch to eat while on the Trail, and plenty of water for the day.
