Skills Clinic: “The Sacred Waste” and Going #2 in the Backcountry
February 6, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
What concerns many novice backpackers or hikers even more than bears and blisters is, “How do I go to the bathroom in the woods?” Rest assured, it’s something humans have been doing for a long time. At this Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) clinic, you’ll learn about going to the bathroom in the woods, backcountry hygiene challenges, and outdoor ethics. Our SAORP coaches will talk about women-specific topics, minimizing waste, and their favorite outdoor hygiene products. This clinic targets anyone and everyone – from the novice campers to the thru-hikers.
