Crested Butte Mountain Manners Car Camping & Campfire

Mountain Manners Car Camping & Campfire

August 2, 2017 4:00 pm

Mountain Manners was created as a response from locals about "loving our public lands to death.” Collaboratively conceived and sponsored by the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, Mountain Manners serve as a relatable, easy to remember, fun and eye-catching educational campaign to teach recreators about outdoor etiquette.

Learn methodologies to selecting durable car camping and campfire sites; building low impact fires; cooking; dealing with dishwater and trash; “toilet practices” and other strategies to making your car camping experience the best all around. Bring adult campfire beverages and snacks if you desire for chatting around the fire afterwards. Please note this is not an overnight event.
