CANCELLED: Compass Navigation

CANCELLED: Compass Navigation In-Person

This event has been canceled due to predicted storm showers. Please look for a similar event in the summer.

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 likely include some outdoor walking so, please dress comfortably. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own compass.
