Orienteering Workshop (In Person Only!) In-Person

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 three dimensions of the land around us. We’ll also talk about magnetic north, true north, and magnetic variation (declination) and how to take a bearing with a compass. This workshop will include some outdoor walking so, please dress comfortably. Compasses will be provided but attendees are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they wish.
