Navigation 101- How to Get Unlost • 1:00 - 5:00Course List
Join Jenna Nodding, from Get Outside Adventures, for a day in the field learning how to get un-lost. By the end of the day you'll be able to find north without a compass (or GPS), match the terrain around you to the map, use a compass to orientate the map to north, and tell your friends what the squiggly lines on a topo map mean!!! Phew, that is a lot to cover, but are we ever going to have fun!
