Hiking is a wonderful hobby and great exercise, as well as a good way to get in touch with nature! Learn how to do it right and stay safe. The art of “Staying Found” requires little more than a good map and compass, and the know-how to use them properly.


Today’s topographic maps are the best available, and magnetic compass models are well-designed for the modern navigator. Learning to use a compass and map together is a fundamental skill every outdoorsperson should have. This contributes to your safety afield, and to your success.


This workshop offers introduction to these skills, with materials and hands-on learning provided. Instruction will be followed with a hike to practice your new skills or refine skills you already possess.

Please bring a mask, water, a snack, and bug spray. Compasses and workshop materials will be provided. (If you have your own compass, you're welcome to bring it!)
