The effort to rebuild all of the privies along the Appalachian Trail in Maine continues. The Hurd Brook privy is one of four being rebuilt in 2018. Providing functional privies for hikers helps concentrate our impact on the Trail and protects it and the land it windes through.
Join the Maine Appalachian Trail Club (MATC) on Saturday, August 18 as they start to level the ground for the privy site and bring in the lumber to build it.
The group will be car camping approximately .75 miles from the privy construction site and volunteers interested in participating on Saturday and Sunday are welcome to spend the night there. No experience needed, everyone is welcome to join in on the fun.
Be sure to wear sturdy boots, long pants, and work gloves. Also, bring your own lunch, personal snacks, a rain jacket, insect repellent, and plenty of water.
Advanced registration necessary; please use this link in registering for this work-trip.
