Winter Map and Compass at Albert Family Community Forest

Date: Saturday, March 16, 2019 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Co-sponsored by Rensselaer Land Trust and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance.

Hiking is a wonderful hobby and great exercise as well as a great way to get in touch with nature! Let us teach you how to do it right! 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 the magnetic compass models are well-designed for the modern navigator. Learning to use a compass and map together are fundamental skills each outdoorsman and woman should have to ensure a safe and successful trip afield. This field class offers hands-on learning and a fun hike!

Meet at the parking lot of the Albert Family Community Forest at the end of Hayes Road in East Nassau.

Register in advance with Fred McCagg by e-mail.
