The TATC Education Corner
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 print out any of of the Educational Handouts provided below.
Watch the ACTIVITIES SCHEDULE the bi-monthly newsletter, ‘Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club APPALACHIAN HIKER,’ and on the web site, for Backpacking Seminars and other educational activities.
If you have any suggestions or criticisms, please...
