Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club


Welcome to the TATC Education Corner.  Part of TATC’s mission is to provide information and education to novice, as well as experienced, hikers, backpackers, canoeists, kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts.  Over the years a number of Educational Handouts have been developed and made available at meetings.   But distribution has always been minimal due to reproduction costs.  It is hoped that this corner of the Club’s web site will be more accessible, and more informative, to our members and guests.  Please feel free to use this link or the link in the education menu above to go to the "Index of Educational Handouts" to print out any of of the Educational Handouts provided.  Click on a title to launch a copy of each handout. All documents in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format unless noted)
