Compass and Map Reading in the Field
Want to stay found on and off the trail in a park or in the wilderness? Want to get better at reading maps and a compass? Join us for a fun event at the close by Lake Elmo Park Reserve. Minnesota Orienteering Club designed field courses there to help us learn and practice how maps translate on the ground. We’ll have topological maps and compasses to use, or bring your own compass that has been lying underused in the closet. Rover Don, who will show us how to use map and compass in various ways has got decades of outdoor and wilderness experience.
Estimated cost: share of gas & permit.
