Mountain Manners Half Day Hike

July 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Mountain Manners Half Day Hike

Mountain Manners courses teach you 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. This week features a Mountain Manners Half Day Hike Wednesday, July 19 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. for $40 with instructor Gillian Rossi. This affordable option gets down to business and leaves enough time for you to squeeze in another activity later in the day. Reference materials and fun SWAG provided!

All 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 and there are three courses offered during July. Hikers, bikers, backpackers and car campers and all other outdoor recreationalists are welcome.

Register for all Mountain Manners courses through the program’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.
