Backcountry Navigation With A Map and Compass
Saturday, December 5, 2020
$79 for REI Members
$99 for non-members
During this class, our instructors will help you understand the information provided on your map, the proper use of your compass, and how to put the two together. You'll learn about magnetic north, true north, and magnetic variation (declination). After covering these fundamentals, you'll get time to practice taking a bearing from the terrain and your map so that you can make sense of your position and plan a route. This engaging course is a great introduction to outdoor navigation and map reading!

Rolling grasslands, grazing livestock, stone walls, and historic farm buildings are part of this pastoral landscape - a rare glimpse into New England's agricultural past. A gift of Colonel Francis R. Appleton, Jr., and his wife Joan, Appleton Farms is one of the oldest continuously operating farms in the country, established and maintained by nine generations of the Appleton family. Six miles of footpaths, bridle paths, and farm roads offer a perfect landscape for hiking and gaining new skills!
