Are you interested in navigating the world with a good ol’ map and compass but don’t know how? Come learn with our MEC professional.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Be familiar with topographic maps, the features that distinguish them from other types of maps and the reasons they are ideal for backcountry navigation
  • Understand concepts and symbols on a topographic map
  • Understand the features basic to all compasses, as well as additional features that may be desirable in a compass intended for backcountry navigation.
