Event Details

This workshop will help you to learn how to use a map and compass or increase your skills in using them. It will be held on a detailed map of the Brewster Heath Preserve. We will meet at the parking lot off McManus Road at 10:00 am. The map is a detailed contour map that has the trails and streams on it and also boulders and stone walls as well as other features. This makes it easier to keep track of where you are as you travel on the trails or through the woods. If you have a compass, you should bring it, but some loaner compasses will be available.

The workshop will introduce you how to read contours, how to use the compass to walk along a route (whether it be a path or through the woods). No experience is needed but those with some experience may learn something too. It will last about 2 hours. Dress for the woods, bring a water bottle. Insect repellent is recommended. If you want more information, contact Peter Goodwin at pgwolfe66@gmail.com or 603-998-3582.
