How DO you Poop in the Woods? (And other LNT Questions)

June 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

No one wants to talk about it, but everyone does it. It’s finally time to shed some light on it (not literally…)!

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will lead this evening clinic on how to poop in the woods as well as other Leave No Trace practices to implement while in the backcountry. The TRTA’s mission is to maintain and enhance the Tahoe Rim Trail system, practice and inspire stewardship and preserve access to the natural beauty of the Lake Tahoe region. Part of that natural beauty does NOT include toilet paper landmines, so to inspire you and yours to care for our environment we’re bringing to you some of the less-discussed aspects of Leave No Trace wilderness ethics.

These backcountry-use guidelines are brought to you by the Center for Outdoor Ethics, whose mission is to protect the outdoors by teaching and inspiring people to enjoy it responsibly. Let the Tahoe Rim Trail Association bring to life the messages and principles of Leave No Trace wilderness ethics to help make your next backcountry trip more environmentally friendly, keeping the wilderness wild for years to come. Please join us for this exciting and informative clinic. Participants will have the opportunity to make their own FREE backcountry poop-kit to take along on your next backcountry adventure, along with the knowledge of how to properly – and comfortably! – use it. All ages welcomed.

All participants are eligible for a 20% discount on any Ibex apparel! Alpenglow and Sierra Nevada will provide the adult beverages.
