N for Nature
So I just got back from my awesome camping trip and I miss nature already! The camp place is called Black Rock Forest and its a totally cool place to stay at. A lot of scientists go there to do research on the environment and some of the animals that live there. There's a modern day lodge, a science building, and solar panels in the forest! (along with bears, coyotes, spiders, snake, deers, and wasps..and FLIES!)
composting toilet. The first thing our tour guide showed us was their toilet system! It's really cool. All your waste falls down this dark hole into a big black box where it decomposes. The black box is in the basement of the lodge and surprisingly it doesn't stink down there because there's this fan inside the box that sucks air thru the toilet. So as your sitting on the toilet, you will feel air being sucked down the hole...hahaha
Nature is beautiful!
