Outdoor Navigation – NEW DATE

June 30 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- $12

Exploring is awesome!

ADULTS & YOUTH AGES 10+

We’re natural-born explorers; all we need is a lively intro to map reading techniques to open up adventures in our local parks.  This is a great way to introduce orienteering, a sport which combines racing with navigation.  Check out:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZOI9kKuA4I.  Learn the elements of a good map, commonly mapped features, orientation & relocation, thumbing & contours and the joy of knowing where you’re going!

Bring: Outdoor shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and compass if you have one.

Instructors: Bob Forgrave is former director of the state orienteering youth league and former middle school team coach bob.forgrave@flatbike.net.  Chris Whitmyre is former director of the Ultimate Orienteer series in Cascade Orienteering Club cwhitmyre@msn.com.

Location: The Crow’s Nest at Community Park, then outdoors in the park.
