Mountain Manners Half Day Hike
Name: Mountain Manners Half Day Hike
Date: July 19, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM MDT
Do you love being in the backcountry but don’t know if you’re “doing it right?” Mountain Manners Courses are based in the Leave No TraceTM tenets and give you the low-down on low-environmental impact travel through wild, fragile places. Hikers, bikers, backpackers and car campers - come get smart about bringing the right gear; trail etiquette; choosing the best lunch and camp sites; making a low impact fire; preserving flora and fauna; “toilet” practices; dealing with trash; preserving water quality and more. Reference materials and fun SWAG provided at all classes! The shorter half day hike allows you to focus exclusively on the Mountain Manners skills you came to learn, allows for an affordable entry point, and still leaves you with the rest of the day to fill as you please! The entire course takes place outdoors! Register through Mountain Manner’s sponsor, the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, online at www.crestedbuttewildflowerfestival.com. Go to the “Events” tab, then “Mountain Manners Stewardship Classes” on the drop-down menu. You may also register by phone at (970) 349-2571. Meet at the 4-way stop / Visitor Center in Crested Butte on the NE Corner of Elk Avenue and Sixth Street (Hwy 135) and be prepared to carpool.
