Free Map & Compass Class

Friends of Boggs Mountain is sponsoring a free map and compass class on Saturday November 4 at 10:00 am at The Little Red School House in Cobb. The address is 15780 Bottle Rock Rd.,  Cobb. During this class, our instructor will help you understand a topographic map, proper use of your compass, and how to use the two together. You’ll learn about magnetic north, true north, and map symbology. After covering these fundamentals, you’ll get time to practice orienting a map in proper north direction and understanding contour lines. This engaging class is a great introduction to outdoor navigation and map reading on Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest!

Please RSVP to [email protected] by Wednesday, November 1 and arrive 5 – 10 minutes prior to the start time listed. To get the best instruction, bring your own compass as supplies are limited. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Hope to see you there!
