Losing your way in the wilderness can be an inconvenience or a life threatening problem. However, with some simple tools, knowledge, and skills, not only can you avoid getting lost but you can plan and execute off trail travel into amazing back country landscapes or navigate to a specific location when it really counts.
In this course will learn how to use map and compass to find out where you are, plan a route to where you want to go, and get there. We will discuss navigation terminology, landscape features, various types of maps, and how to use navigation tools. Most of the time will be spent building awareness of landscape, translating between map and landscape, using tools to navigate in forests and fields in various types of terrain. Expect cool to cold weather. Open to all skill levels and students.
