Thursday Night Clinic: Learn to Navigate with a Map & Compass

 

Even in this high tech GPS era, nothing can replace the value of a compass and paper map. L.L.Bean’s founder, Leon Leonwood Bean, once said, "If you get lost, just go straight back to camp." If only it were that easy. How do I use a compass? Let’s find out.

 

Objectives

• Identify all parts of a base plate compass.

• Take a compass bearing on an object.

• Take a bearing on a topographic map.

• Navigate back to a spot.

 

As always, clinics are completely free of charge.  Join us each Tuesday evening to learn something new and exciting!  Bring yourself, or the whole family!  All are welcome to attend, so we look forward to seeing you there!

For more information, please call our store at[masked]
