Sidney Tappan New Privy Prep

June 26
White Cap District

Join us on Saturday June 26 to help prepare the building site for a new privy at the Sidney Tappan campsite. The new privy will be constructed September 4-5, but on June 26 we'll fell a couple of trees, level the ground (yes, this means some digging), and install the base 4x6s.

This event will take place in the "front-country" at a residence in Palmyra, so no is hiking necessary! There will be lots of lumber cutting, prepping, and packing but no hauling!

Sidney Tappan Privy Building

White Cap District

We're putting the "labor" into Labor Day weekend by building a new privy at the Sidney Tappan campsite! A group of Colby College freshman will help haul in the materials (thank goodness!) on September 4th, but we'll need plenty of people to help with building, painting, and tool toting. Early fall is a great time to help give back to your trail!
