Knowing how to use a map and compass is a critical skill when venturing into the wilderness and while GPS devices are a great tool, they do not replace basic land navigation skills. This course will teach you how to use a compass as well as basic map reading skills, magnetic deviation, triangulating your position, staying orientated, measuring distance, pacing, and finding your way with just a map or just a compass. The course consists of both classroom lecture/discussion as well as field practice. Be prepared to venture into the woods, confident that you can navigate to your destination and return safely!
