Introduction to Map and Compass

We will be doing basic navigation with map and compass, including:

1) understanding your compass;

2) taking a bearing;

3) reading a topographic map;

4) using a map to set a bearing;

5) delineation; and

6) triangulation.

We will be going to Barrier Lake for the afternoon. Dress for a easy hike for the weather.

WHAT TO BRING: Bring a snack and water. If you have the Gem Trek "Canmore and Kananaskis Village" map bring it with you. Bring a compass. Bring a pencil.

COST: Free for CORA members. Annual memberships are $20 for the year. $5 for non-members for the day.

CAR POOLING: We will meet at the north west end of the Dalhousie LRT station parking lot and arrange rides. CORA trips start at the trailhead.
