Privy Restoration in Connecticut

Of the 7 Leave No Trace Principles (LNT), the third one is to dispose of waste properly, and to pack out what you pack in. Since hikers aren’t asked to pack out their poo on the A.T. (though some land managers request it), trail maintainers help hikers by building and maintaining privies that provide a sanitary means of composting human waste.

Join the Connecticut Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC-CT) to help with the restoration of their most popular privy. Meet with trip leader Russ Waldie at the Old Railroad Station on RT. 128 in West Cornwall on Wednesday, May 2 at 9 a.m. and work with the group until around 3 p.m.

All tools and training will be provided. Wear sturdy boots, long pants and work gloves, or latex gloves and eye protection. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks and water.
