We have a problem with our National Forests. Poop. Feces can take years to decompose, especially if it's not buried properly. And toilet paper flowers are the one thing you don't want to see. Let's educate. Please note: the standards on this sign are the absolute minimum. The particular location I set this up in is very heavily trafficked, with many first time wilderness users. In more sensitive areas you should consider a WAG bag.

Cut out the design. Most of it is on-line, although the "POOP" is a pocket. To paint I used brown spray paint after cutting, and then used a brush with white paint to paint the lettering. This was very tedious, taking about 5 hours for two coats. The next sign I make I'll try a different painting technique. Head out to your favorite trailhead and set up your sign.
