Field Navigation Course
March 10 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm$50
This half day class will focus on fundamental map and compass skills. We will learn to plan a route of travel, orient a map, shoot an azimuth and use terrain association skills to keep ourselves on course. We’ll also cover an introduction to coordinate systems and plot a UTM point to which we will travel and identify. Be prepared to hike in semi-rugged terrain and be prepared for the weather. In addition bring water, a snack or other mobile calories, sturdy footwear, and a compass if you own one. Demo compasses are available if needed.
