Know where you are at all times, learn the skill of navigation and orienteering! Navigating using a map and compass is one of those skills that make you feel like a true outdoors person. A handheld GPS is a great tool, however having a grasp on navigation fundamentals is critical when venturing into the wilds. The only essential tools you need (and are provided in the class) is a magnetic compass, a topographic map and knowledge how to use these tools. Being a well-rounded navigator is more than that though. There are natural clues, such as ridges, valleys, streams and rivers that help us understand our surroundings. It is important to develop this “common sense” knowledge in the outdoors to feel the readiness necessary to head into the backcountry. Understanding how to properly read a topographical map enhances your foundation and confidence as a backcountry traveler. In this course we take the time to practice hands on and theoretical navigation and map and compass skills. The interactive learning environment turns this topic into a fun and exciting day of practicing navigation skills and turning them into knowledge you will use every time you are on the trail. Skills such as orienting a map without a compass, taking a bearing and learning the difference between magnetic and true North are etched into our minds through games and lots of practice. After this class you can expect to feel confident about navigating and walk away with knowledge about: ·Navigating in the backcountry using natural clues ·Navigating using a map and compass ·Route finding ·Triangulating using a map and compass ·Reading a topographical map ·The difference between magnetic and true north use in working with a map and compass What to expect: Moderate hiking 4 hours of moving Interactive learning through games and practice To become a skilled map reader The possiblity of wildlife sightings Spectacular views The meeting of like minded outdoors people We provide: Map Compass You bring: Solid walking shoes suitable for walking on uneven surfaces A small daypack for your things Plenty of water for 6 hours of activity (we recommend 1-2 liters) A snack as you see fit Proper clothing for the predicted weather Sun Protection Learn the essential outdoor skill of navigating over land using a map and compass.
