During this class, our instructors will help you understand a topographic map, 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! Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start time listed and come prepared with personal snacks and water. Participants under 18 must be accompanied registered adult.
