137 Navigating with Map and Compass
(see note for location)
Mark Goldhammer, experienced hiker, backpacker,
cyclist and runner who teaches economics at
Rutgers University
Sat., 9:00 am–12:00 pm, March 25, 1 session; Rain date: April 1
$75

This class will teach the basics of navigating in the wild using a map and compass. Students will walk with a topographic map and learn to understand the information the map contains. Participants will then learn how to use a compass to find their way, determining where they are on the map as they move about. When relying on electronics to guide one’s way in the outdoors, a person is dependent on tools with limited battery life and is less in tune with the environment.
This class, by contrast, will teach you to be more aware of your surroundings, get where you need to be, and develop skills with which to explore the outdoors using tools that never run out of power.

 

NOTE: Wear appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear, and be prepared for uneven terrain with rocks and roots. Equipment needed: Students will be asked to bring a baseplate compass with
adjustable declination. Upon registering they can be sent a photograph (instructor will provide) of an appropriate compass. Students will have use of laminated topographic maps and wax pencils during the course. Students will meet at St. Michaels Preserve West Parking Lot, County Road 569, Hopewell, NJ 08525.
