Compass Navigation Workshop

No Cell signal!? GPS quit working!? Have no fear, it is still possible to find your way. We will teach you how to read the signs and symbols of a topographic map and how to associate the two-dimensional map with the land around us. We’ll also talk about to take a bearing with a compass and make it work together with maps. Weather permitting, this workshop will include some outdoor walking so, please dress comfortably. Maps will be provided but attendees are encouraged to bring their own compass.
