Map and Compass Treasure Hunt

Learn the basics of map reading and orienteering in this IRWS workshop.

It's nice to have GPS, but do you know how to read a map or use a compass? What happens if you're out on the trail and your GPS malfunctions or the batteries die?  Are you instantly lost?  Bring your compass (or use one of ours) as we talk about "red in the shed," true north, and magnetic north. After some basic compass exercises, we'll hit the trails with a map to search for nature treasure. This program is a good introduction to orienteering - a must have skill for any person who wishes to enjoy outdoor adventures in the woods!
