Wilderness Navigation with Map and Compass
Learn basic wilderness navigation skills using a map and compass to find your way. In this class you'll learn the parts of a compass, how to read a topographic map, and how to use them in tandem. You'll learn how to pinpoint your location through triangulation and then navigate to new locations by following a bearing. Students will go home with much more confidence in their ability to use a map and compass when it really counts!  Maps and compasses are provided, but bring your own if you prefer. Optional text: “Be Expert with Map & Compass” by Bjorn Kjellsterom. This class will take place on Monday and Wednesday, Oct. 15 and 17 on the MVCC Utica Campus, from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Cost is $39.
