CANCELED: Learn Map and Compass Navigation

Sunday, November 15, 2020 - 10 a.m.–12 p.m.

During this class, expert instructors from REI will help you understand the information provided on a map, the proper use of a compass, and how to put the two together.

Participants will learn fundamentals such as:

  • Magnetic north
  • True north
  • 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!

  • Free.  No registration required.
  • Limited to a maximum of 12 participants.
